it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, life-changing-reads
Recommended for: People interested in pre-columbian art, archaeology and history
Read in June, 2005

This book will forever stand in my memory. It was well organized and was loaded with incredible images. I especially appreciated the detailed timelines that marked out the historic eras of pre-columbian societys. Townsend's essay considering ancient people's connection with the earth was not condesending or romantic, yet provided valuable insight into the use and importance of the art and architecture produced by these complex cultures.
