Ellen Sue Turner, Thomas R. Hester, and Richard L. McReynolds, editors

This richly documented and illustrated catalog of exquisite drawings cleverly classifies the trove of points and spearheads that have been excavated across Texas, revealing the astounding variety and sophistication of cultures that have been present in these lands going back as far as 10,000 years ago. The authors refer to recent discoveries of human remains that also indicate how often these weapons were used not just against animals but other peoples, a testimony of how long homicide has been a mainstay around these parts. You’ll reconsider the notion that these lands were vast and unpopulated before the arrival of numerous settlers.
