Humans have visited the Texas High Plains for nearly twelve thousand years. In this brief, readable history, Paul H. Carlson surveys the Lubbock Lakd Landmark's long geologic past, placing emphasis on human activity in the region and showing how early peoples adapted to shifting environmental conditions and changing animal resources.
Yet this book is more than a history of the Landmark. Carlson places this significant national archaeological site in broad perspective, connecting it to geology and history in the larger upper Brazos River drainage system and, by extension, the central Llano Estacado.
