Taboos worked as determents as well as not over hunting and showing respect for people, places and things. Five hundred years ago, the tribes of western North America were among the most stable, successful, and sustainable human societies on the planet. Cook seemed to take a very reasoned scientific approach, and had footnotes for each number.

    It has great deductions and detailed list of Bay Area tribes at the back.

They used the dark energy of forged iron to repel the bright spirits. Women understood how to terminate unwanted pregnancies.
