First Peoples - Fantastic
This is a fantastic summary of our present understanding of early human life in America. It not only gave me a good summary of migration to and through America, but also the science behind this understanding. Though the explanations got quite technical at times (genetics, for example), I never felt overwhelmed. Both the writing and reading were great.

If you could sum up First Peoples in a New World in three words, what would they be?
Interesting information and its not complete
What was one of the most memorable moments of First Peoples in a New World?
This book was very interesting but the part about grasses changing and that being toxic to the mega fauna as apposed to human incursion was particularly so since most of what I have read to date points to human hunting pressure as the culprit.
What three words best describe Christopher Prince’s performance?
Mr. Prince reads too fast to get the full picture. This is intricate and complex. The geography alone encompasses half the world. He leaves no space between sentences to absorb information.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
Re-record and have the reader add better inflection, better timing and pacing.
