New perspectives on American history, architecture, archaeology, curation and ethnography, from the report files of the National Park Service.
Since 1930 the National Park Service has sponsored or acquired thousands of archaeological, architectural, ethnographic, museum collections management and historical research reports exploring the riches of the American heritage. Few have been available even at the largest libraries and research institutions.
Now reproduced on microfiche these unique reports offer social and cultural historians, anthropologists and other researchers fresh insights into America's past from Great Smoky Mountains dialect to Great Lakes lighthouse folklore, from prehistoric Native American earth mounds to Civil War battlefields and Presidential furnishings.
