Fascinating Guide to the Long History NA.

Fascinating. White people, prepare to be disappointed in your ancestors. Certainly the author has a bias, but it's hard to argue with the historical documents she quotes from - orders from military personnel to clear Native peoples from their lands; personal correspondence specifically arguing that the Natives must be wiped out completely in order for America to thrive... it's hard to argue with this portrayal. Do yourself a favor and read this if you're wondering what all the fuss is about at Standing Rock.

Essential Reading for Any American

To truly understand ourselves and current events, we must understand the foundation upon which our society was built. This courageous book illuminates a sordid, saddening but truly essential part of our shared American history. Recommend that everyone listen to it.

Interesting

It is great to see the stories are starting to have truth behind them. As an Ojibwa or Chippewa it would have been nice to hear the names of some tribes pronounced correctly. This is why the 4 stars

A perfect five stars book.

I wish this book to be mandatory reading in all of America's history classrooms so that future generations know the truth of the slaughter which happened and the cruelty which persists now. Thank you, Roxanne, for the study and research which resulted in this magnificent, historically important masterpiece.

Mandatory reading in our classroms!

This book is a well written, detailed, authoritative accounting of the horrific, shameful, cruelly brutal genocide, which has been and continues to be, perpetrated against the more than 500 Indigenous Native Nations since the earliest invasions of the Western Hemisphere by barbarous, land-grabbing, wealth-seeking Europeans.

I wish I'd been taught this in school.

An important read, I read about Native American History a year ago, it stayed with me, its a brutal history and one that needs to be told. I got this book and got all what I wished.

It gets better and better as it nears the end

If you want an accurate consensus of the facts on the atrocities committed against indigenous peoples throughout American history, this is your book. While there is a clear bias in Captivating History approach, I would argue that it is an accurate bias, one in defense of peoples whom have spent generations within the strongholds of systematic oppression. A hugely important work, this will be required reading in anthropology/sociology/history classes for decades to come.

A necessary catalog of toxic.

Difficult to rate this book for me because I am in love with it. An important book to listen to and a clarifying picture of our history. I will keep it and listen to it again and agian. That says everything.

Excellent scholarship, not for common people.

I'm looking for a book as well-researched as this one, but better-written. If I find it, I'll add it as a comment on this review.

Tedious narrative...

I really want to like this book. The scholarship is evident and I'm sympathetic to the author's purpose. The book is a collection of events and dates, organized in chronological order, with no attempt to identify cause and effect or to explore options in historical context. It literally reads like "general socioeconomic trend X" led to "general set of policies Y" therefore "general socioeconomic trend Z".

Great read, well researched

This book should be mandatory reading for American history students, high school or otherwise. American citizens need to recognize the truth behind how we came to "own" this country and how we continue to impoverish and isolate our Native citizens. If we really are to be cast as the "good guys", we need to start acting like it and try to make amends for our sad history in this area.

Horrific, Unsettling, Soul-Searching

I need another lifetime to sort this out, I'm a product of an entirely different perspective than presented in this work ( as are most US Americans). This book has deeply moved me! Only because I have a renewed thirst for more corroborating history did I give less than 5 stars.

An essential audible to listen for everyone.

If you want to understand the culture and meaning of the USA, this book is essential reading. It’s essential premise can not be denied and yet has not even been considered by the majority of USA citizenry past or present.

Great read indeed.

I got this book because I have some knowledge about the specific topic but wanted to need more. It is an amazing read! I have learned a lot about colonization from the Native Americans perspective.

Seeing History Through Another's Eyes.

Sometimes a book comes along that makes you re-think your very existence, your history, everything you think you know about your place in the world. An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Captivating History raised all those questions in my heart, mind, and soul. An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States made me look at every history class I've ever taken through a different lens.

Narratives of resilience and survivance.

This is good, solid writing and an historical tour de force. This work is relevant every day. I recommend it.
