Indian Artifacts of the Midwest, Volume 5
Lar Hothem's first four books on this subject have been great sellers, and Book V, the first of the series in full color, will sell even better with nearly as many photographs as the first two books combined, and no repeats from any of the other books! There are over 2,150 full-color photographs featuring thousands of specimens from our ancient past. Hothem, widely known for his research and publications in the field of Indian artifacts, gives the collector all the necessary facts about each item featured, such as important details, size, date, location found, and current collector value. Once again this book covers the artifacts found in the heartland of North America, with its primary emphasis on the more common, readily available types, not the museum pieces virtually never seen or found. A new feature of this volume is a section on artifact record keeping. A present-day treasury documenting America's past!
