BOOK REVIEW
COME TELL ME HOW YOU LIVED: NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY OF THE TENNESSEE VALLEY

Author: Charles Enloe Moore

This book is prefaced with a free verse poem where the author asks Early Man how he lived. After his response, Early Man asks the archaeologist what he does. Then readers are challenged to learn from the answers while reading about Native American cultures, from migration into this country to the Trail of Tears in the Tennessee Valley.

There are over 270 pictures of artifacts, site work, and maps illustrating their interesting story. The book introduces several new theories that have never been seen in print before.

B. Bart Henson's additional appendix on rock art in the Tennessee Valley certainly helps to make the book worthwhile and interesting reading.
