    After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Indians of the Americas has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Indians to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.

    Story

    This is a very interesting book. It covers a wide range of topics on how early inhabitants from South and North America were instrumental in unlocking the treasures of the New World long before Europeans discovered and then exploited these peoples, reaping untold richest/benefits while virtually exterminating the benefactors without giving them even the slightest credit. One small example is the author makes a compelling case that the US democracy was in a significant way modeled after the native american values of personal freedom and tribal methods of governance...fascinating stuff!
