of the Prehistoric America series, this landmark work describes
hundreds of effigy mounds in Wisconsin and the United States.
Authoritatively written, it also describes earthworks that have
completely disappeared due to farming, erosion and modern
construction (many had virtually disappeared by the time of
publication). Many hundreds of mounds are located and described as well as discussions of the reasons
they were built and the village sites associated
contrasts and compares the Wisconsin mounds with
examples from other states, including the Great
Serpent Mound in Ohio and a bone serpent path
in North Dakota that bears an uncanny resemblance to
a serpent of standing stones in Abury, England.
