About the author (2009)

Lar Hothem is a well-known expert in the field of Indian arrowheads and artifacts. His popular series, Indian Artifacts of the Midwest series has now added its fifth volume. His other titles include Indian Axes & Related Stone Artifacts, Indian Pipes, Arrowheads & Projectile Points, and Indian Trade Relics.

Jim Bennett was hooked on artifact collecting the moment he found his first arrowhead. While walking across a cornfield while out hunting one day, he stopped to tie a bootlace, and there it was - just sitting there, waiting to be found. From that very moment began his quest for knowledge and a deeper understanding of ancient man and the tools they left behind.
