The Mound Builders
By Robert Silverberg

This scholarly study examines the history of the investigations into the thousands of mysterious mounds encountered by Europeans who settled up and down the Mississippi Valley and who refused to believe that they were built by the much earlier generations and cultures of American Indians. Science fiction writer Silverberg uses an engaging writing style to discuss the "discovery" of the mounds by the settlers, early theories about their origins from learned journals of the 1800s and the studies by the nascent Smithsonian Institute that finally established that the mounds were created by American Indians.
