    /*Starred Review*/ Gr. 5-10. Who were the first Americans? Where did they come from? How did they get here? When did they come? In a lively narrative that draws readers right into crucial research going on now, Lauber weaves together geology, archaeology, genetics, anthropology, language, and shows how some recent archaeological findings challenge the classical theory that the first peoples came to Alaska from Siberia and settled first in the American Southwest. New evidence, including the recent discovery of an ancient skeleton in Washington suggests that people might have arrived much earlier from Europe. Several Native American nations have claimed the skeleton and want to bury it as their religious beliefs demand; but scientists have sued the government to keep the bones for study. Especially compelling are the questions raised and the details about how experts work. How is carbon-14 dating done? What does it prove? The inviting, spacious, magazine-style design, with lots of paintings, maps, photos, and screened insets, makes the complex information accessible. With so much to talk about, this will make a great cross-curricular classroom title, which will interest adults as well as the target readership. Includes a bibliography and Web sites.
