Ozark Bluff-Dwellers

M.R. Harrington

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

If you're interested in the archaeology of rockshelters of the Ozarks, you won't find a better fit than this book by M.R. Harrington.  As with some other rock shelter and cave sites, a wealth of artifacts made from perishable materials such as wood and cane were found.  Some of the more unique are a wooden atlatl and hafted implements including a celt, axe and shell hoe.

This 6" x 8-1/2", soft cover,  facsimile reprint has 183 text pages  with 16 in-text figures and 47  full page plates of engravings and photographs.   $18.95
