Did you know that the Illinois Confederacy of North America is arguably the longest ruling civilization in the world? Surpassing the Romans, Egyptians, Japanese, and Chinese, the Native Americans of this confederacy ruled the Midwest unchallenged for more than 9,000 years.

Fifteen thousand to 20,000 Native peoples from 12 tribes banded together under a common language and maintained peace on the prairie. While their interest in developing relations with European settlers eventually led to their dissolution, the confederacy is still one of the most notable civilizations of all time. To their ancestors, this is a legacy worth preserving, and to everyone else, it is certainly one worth learning about.

OK

Illinois Native Americans: A 9,000 Year Civilization: I have listened to quite a few of in60learning audio books and have always been impressed, however this one seemed light on detail and fact compared to their normal high standard of introductory learning. That said it is interesting history just "light"
I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my own request, and voluntarily leave this review.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of Illinois Native Americans: A 9,000 Year Civilization, by in60Learning and narrated by Lisa S. Ware. I really like the in60Learning books. They remind me of the short story history books I read as a kid. This book is my least favorite in60Learning books. The narrator was slightly irritating. There was some interesting information about the Illinois that I didn’t know about. Wasn’t totally bad but wasn’t good either.
