The discovery in 1927, in Folsom, New Mexico, of a projectile among the rib bones of an ancient animal revealed the coexistence of man with now extinct animals during the Ice Age. S<AEa>nchez focuses on Clovis culture in Sonora, Mexico, synthesizing all the evidence. Twelve Clovis documented sites indicate extensive use of the region by Paleoindian hunters and gatherers. Her investigations demonstrate that the Clovis people used a variety of raw materials for tool making, and that the homogeneity of Clovis points, the sharing of artifacts between groups, and the sharing of raw materials suggests that Clovis groups maintained strong ties with extended populations at a regional level. S<AEa>nchez cites that there is more to learn about the Paleoindian occupation of Sonora--information that will be important in understanding how they used different environments to support themselves as they spread through North and South America.
