New Mandan Indian book added to Archives collection

The book Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People, by Elizabeth A. Fenn, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following is a description taken from the cover: “In this extraordinary book, Elizabeth A. Fenn retrieves their history by piecing together important new discoveries in archaeology, anthropology, geology, climatology, epidemiology, and nutritional science. Her boldly original interpretation of these diverse research findings offers us a new perspective on early American history, a new interpretation of the American past.”
