Abstract

SouthwesternHistoricalQuarterly January which focuses on the Archaic period (8,500 to 2,000 years ago). Due to a semi-arid interval of time, animals dependent on the region's water supplies departed as vegetative cover gradually decreased at the Lubbock Lake site. People continued to use the site, though, to camp and gather plants. Carlson is on shakier ground when he characterizes social organization during the Archaic period. For example, he states that sharing, egalitarianism, and flexible social institutions "must have been present" and acknowledges that he can only "speculate" about mobility patterns (p. 65). The next two chapters cover the period from two thousand years ago to the present. Carlson discusses rather informatively and adroitly the process by which Indian people branched off into separate cultural groupings, contested one another for access to the area, and felt the impact of Europeans entering the area. He then narrates Americans' attempts to hunt bison and ranch the area, their impacts on the local environment, and archaeological activity that has uncovered much of the information that makes up this study. Historians should produce more studies of the kind Carlson has tackled. Geology significantly shapes history by defining the limits of the stage upon which
