At the end of the Ice Age, small groups of hunter-gatherers crossed from Siberia to Alaska and opened the last chapter in the human settlement of the earth. Many left little or no trace. But one group--the Early Paleo-Indians--exploded suddenly on the archaeological record about 11,500 years ago and expanded rapidly throughout North America and, eventually, into South America.

Journey to the Ice Age focuses on the Early Paleo-Indians of northeastern North America. A revealing, autobiographical account, it is at once a captivating record of Storck’s archaeological discoveries, as well as an introduction to the practice, challenges, and spirit of archaeology.

Storck (Senior Curator Emeritus, Royal Ontario Museum, Canada) combines autobiographical and conventional science writing in his description of archaeological investigations into the world of the Paleo-Indians, who settled the North American continent beginning about 11,500 years ago. His 30-year career has been largely devoted to investigations in the Ontario region and the growth of knowledge about the early regional settlers of Ontario over those decades plays a central role in his description of his scientific career.

This book is half autobiography, half Ontario field archaeology. It's got the basis of a good book but needed an editor who would send it back to the author with direction to focus it on the archaeology and make it a friendlier read. As it is, I can recommend it only to someone trying to get established in the field.
