At one time boasting an estimated 1,200 preserved mounds of various types, the Four Lakes region of present-day Madison, Wisconsin, was a major center of a Native American culture that built huge effigy earthworks from A.D. 700 to 1100. Shaped as birds, bears, spirit beings, and other figures, many clusters of effigy mounds persist today as world wonders, comparable to the great megaliths of Europe. Copiously illustrated with maps, drawings, and photographs, Spirits of Earth is both a compact history and interpretation of the mounds and a visitor's guide to effigy mounds of the Madison area. Archaeologist Robert Birmingham documents mounds near Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Wingra, Lake Waubesa, and Lake Kegonsa, as well as other mound sites, including Edna Conservancy Park, Elmside and Hudson Parks, Goodland County Park, Governor Nelson State Park, Indian Mound Park, the Mendota Mental Health Institute, the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, the University of Wisconsin campus, Vilas Park, Vilas Park Circle, and Woodland Park.
