Explores many of the questions that still surround the Pleistocene cultures of 12,000 years ago and the adaptations of these early people to the last great ice age. The papers presented in this volume are the result of a symposium in 1988 co-sponsored by the Denver Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution. The conference brought together a diverse group of scholars to discuss such questions as the time of arrival of the first Americans, adaptation to various environments, and the use by early people of high-altitude sites.
