Payne, Mildred Y. & Harry Harrison Kroll  
Mounds in the Mist

Publisher: New York: A. S. Barnes & Co., 1969..
First Edition. 21 X 15 cm. Near Fine/Near Fine. Joint publisher -- Thomas Yoseloff Ltd., London. Light grey cloth, red titles, 312 pp, b & w photos, index. The authors were both English professors rather than archaeologists, so lively writing probably outweighs scientific rigor in this book. From the DJ: "..judging from artifacts recovered in and around the foot of the mounds, the Pinson [Tennessee] mound builders had developed a very high order of stone-age culture, a culture superior in many respects to that of the Indians. Their pottery is unusually well formed and decorated; the delicacy of recovered tools and a variety of intricate fishhooks indicate an advanced artisanship, their many-stranded pearl necklaces show a careful craft and love of beauty."
