In this comprehensive study of the Woodland Tradition, Theler examines
the full annual cycle of subsistence activities in the upper Mississippi
Valley. The book represents a landmark in the study of aboriginal diet,
seasonal resource scheduling, and the dimensions of change and stability.
". . . adds a new dimension to upper Mississippi Valley archaeology.
. . . Woodland Tradition Economic Strategies is a welcome and informative
addition to Midwestern archaeology. It should be in the library of every
archaeologist interested in Midwestern archaeology and in the emergence
of cultural complexity among hunter-gatherers."
"Theler has produced an excellent account of economic variation
and change in the upper Midwest. The book is very well written and deserves
a wide readership. It will be of particular value to anyone with an
interest in faunal analysis, fresh-water mussels, or midwestern archaeology."
