I. Author Bio

 

Mark Q. Sutton began his career in anthropology in 1968.  While still in high school, he took advantage of the opportunity to participate in archaeological excavations conducted by the local Community College. He went on to earn a BA (1972), an MA (1977), and a Ph.D (1987) in anthropology.  He has worked as an archaeologist for the US Air Force, the US Bureau of Land Management, various private consulting firms, and taught at a number of community colleges and universities.  He taught at California State University, Bakersfield from 1987 to 2007 where he retired as Emeritus Professor of Anthropology.  He now works for Statistical Research, Inc. in San Diego.  Dr. Sutton works on understanding hunter-gatherer adaptations to arid environments but has also investigated entomophagy, prehistoric diet and technology, and optimal foraging theory.  Dr. Sutton has worked at more than 120 sites in North America and has published over 160 books, monographs, and papers on archaeology and anthropology.

 

 

 

II. Author Letter

 

Dear Colleague,

 

The purpose of this letter is to introduce you to the new edition (fourth) of my book Introduction to Native North America. Over the years, I have worked with, been associated with, and served a number of Native people from a variety of groups in California. When I took my first Indians class, my Professor was an Oglala woman and in the years since, some of my students have been Natives working on native issues. In addition, I have also spent some time in the Southwest and the Great Basin and have visited the Northwest Coast. While I have not been everywhere in North America, I have developed an appreciation for Native peoples.

 

I had taught the class many times before I decided to write the first edition, primarily out of my belief that I could offer a better organization and approach than the texts I had been using. The book has been successful, so its users generally seem to agree with my original thinking. The second and third editions focused primarily on fixing errors, updating sections, providing study questions, and instructor resources, which were all important improvements.

 

For the fourth edition, however, I focused on a major expansion of Chapter 13, Contemporary Issues. This expanded treatment came at the behest of reviewers (thank you all!) so that their students could better grasp today’s issues and problems. It was a great suggestion and I expended a great deal of energy in that effort, resulting in the fourth edition being much stronger in this area. Of course, I still worked to update the book; I added some new photographs and fixed some errors. I am very pleased with the new book.

 

What’s not to like? The book is well organized, clearly written, understandable, and student-friendly, if I say so myself. Even lay-people like it as a general reference. I am sure that you will find the book a great choice for you and your students. Of course, nothing is perfect and I am always open to suggestions, so please let me know what you think and how I can improve the work by emailing me at msutton@csub.edu.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mark Q. Sutton

 

Emeritus Professor of Anthropology

California State University, Bakersfield

Excerpts

Preface One of the major goals of this fourth edition was to reorganize and expand the chapter on Contemporary Issues, add some new photos, to correct errors, and to update all of the other materials in the book, particularly the sections on prehistory. The recently published A Prehistory of North America (Sutton 2010) is also organized by culture area and can serve as a companion volume to this edition of Native North America. As with the third edition, an Instructor¿s Manual and Test Bank are available to supplement this fourth edition. What¿s New in this Edition * revised treatments of prehistory for each culture area * a major reorganization and expansion of Chapter 13, Contemporary Issues * expansion of the section on Governmental Policies * addition of new research findings and updating of existing information
