J. Whittaker: Plains area, Paleoindian to historic, all major animal species, behavioral and hunting technique discussions from experience as hunter, rancher, archaeologist. Atlatls discussed briefly, photo of find from Spring Creek Cave, info on experiments with atlatls, Clovis pts and culled elephants. Stresses importance of knowing animal behavior for hunter and for arch trying to interpret past. It was easier to improve stalking and get close to animals, working with limitations of weapons than to make major technological improvements. Considers metal pts and tools major improvement over stone. Lots of animals taken in drive and trap systems.
