- Before the lake was Champlain an untold story of Ice Age America /
- "Stories about 'Lost Races' are usually labeled and then dismissed as "Fantastic Archeology" but a surprising new discovery along a high beach terrace of the ancient Champlain Sea has introduced an unknown chapter in the history of Ice Age America. It suggests that an early and sophisticated Native culture once existed in the Northeast that researchers are just beginning to recognize. The lives that these ancient peoples lived were far different from the anthropological models that scientists developed for the Paleo-Indian and the implications of the new discoveries reach through the entire history of Eastern Native civilization to our own time. This program chronicles the long and careful process that has unfolded one of the great archeological mysteries of North America"--Container.
