Summary

Early America covers the regions of South America, Central America, and North America, from the days of the earliest indigenous peoples until the arrival and settlement of colonies through the late 1700s. Beginning with the history of weaving in the Andes and the evolution of textiles, this highly illustrated guide discusses everything from ordinary Inca, Mayan, and Aztec clothing and ceremonial wear to early Native American tribes in North America to British and French colonial styles and their influence in the New World.

Coverage includes pilgrim garb, Quaker style, homespun fabric, Dutch Colonial costume, knickerbockers, native dress of African slaves, the cotton industry, the introduction of Spanish and Portuguese colonial costume, and the military uniforms of the French, British, and Revolutionary armies.
