REVIEWS growing seasons of the Northern Plains. The Mandan leadership prized peaceful commerce over war. Encounters at the Heart of the World is an essential addition to historical scholarship, but it should also find wide acceptance among all who possess an interest in American Indians, anthropology, and stories told well. Former North Dakota State Senator Tr acy P ott er is Executive Director of the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation in Mandan, North Dakota, and author of Sheheke: Mandan Indian Diplomat (Helena, MT, 2003). The Lost History of the New Madrid Earthquakes. By Conevery Bolton Valencius. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2013. Pp. 460. Cloth, $35.00.) Reviewed by Sean Munger Toward the end of The Lost History of the New Madrid Earthquakes, Conevery Bolton Valencius remarks that her book ``has sought to remember how knowledge changes, to trace a process of submerged and re-emerging certainty'' (327). This is an apt summary of the book. At its heart it is an examination of the history of American science as viewed through a case study of the New Madrid earthquakes, a series of cataclysmic tremors that remade the environment of the Mississippi Valley and then were curiously banished from scientific knowledge
