Silverberg, Robert, Mound Builders of Ancient America, Greenwich, New York Graphic Society, [1968].  [xii], [1]-369 pages,  10 ¼ “ x 7 “, red cloth-covered boards.   

First Edition, a good to very good copy in a dust jacket that has seen better days.    Silverberg’s focus is not so much on the Mound builder but rather on the effect of the mounds on the American imagination and myth-making and the Smithsonian Institution’s evacuation and studies that ended up providing accurate archaeological knowledge.
