What was this continent like before people? And what was it like to be the first skinny-limbed bi-peds to enter a land entirely dominated by mammoths, saber-tooth cats, dire wolves, and Ice Age horses? From Alaska to Florida , Utah to New Hampshire , author Craig Childs has been exploring the routes of the first people to enter North America . Childs will lead this spoken-word journey into the Pleistocene.
