Summary "Late Paleoindian Occupation of the Southern Rocky Mountains explores how some of North America's earliest people (10,000 to 7,500 years ago) used the Rocky Mountain landscape. Bonnie L. Pitblado is particularly concerned with the extent to which early people incorporated the southern Rocky Mountains into their settlement systems and how late Paleoindian people moved across the southern Rocky Mountain landscape."--BOOK JACKET.
