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 Certainly the author has a bias, but it's hard to argue with the historical documents she quotes from - orders from military personnel to clear Native peoples from their lands; personal correspondence specifically arguing that the Natives must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.

I just want the history, not your opinion.

I am writing a fantasy book, and I wanting to have some people that had some native-like qualities, I was hoping I could get a history book, and give me the history of the tribes, the people, the relations to the inners tribes, theories on the great city. Maybe even talk about the pyramid at the bottom of the great lakes, and how that might relate to the natives. But instead, I got a very far-left author that wants to go out of his way to be as rude as he can. And for the person that says creation is settled, and 100% myth. genetics say that according to evolution humans can't be as old as they claim, we'd be a dead race. It's not a religious thing, many non-religious scientists are actively walking away from evolution. But back to the tribes, I am very disappointed at your book, all I want is history, not your salty attitude. The Mongols killed Europeans in the black death and spread it on purpose, are books flooded, the evil Asians, killing the innocent white men? NO, well then if you not willing to treat all races equally, and love everyone as you love your self. You shouldn't be writing history books, try opinion books in the New York Times.

Native American History Reframed

Even if you have researched Native American history, these summaries of some of the key known events have been interestingly summarized and told with details that provide keys to understanding and points to ponder. As a teacher and a lover of history, I found this book an excellent resource. Loved it. Thank you!

Opinion piece with a few facts.

This book features more opinions than historical facts. The book glosses over details about tribes but doesn't give much information about their histories. instead the book is mostly about how badly the native people's were treated.

A good simple basics overview

A basic overview but missing important details like the American native wars in the 1800's

Passive Aggressive

Very informative, however, interpreted in a passive aggressive way which takes away from enjoying the history of my tribe.

Eloquent yet eye opening

A book that gives the perspective of Native American experience in U.S. history that you cannot find in many other textbooks in the United States.

Just Tell Me The History

For the most part it was a good book but filled with Anti American Propaganda. I just want to know the History. I don't need you trying to force your opinion about how bad the white Europeans and the Americans were.

starting with misinformation leads to poor facts

when you have no real history recorded, till hundreds of past. 12, to maybe 18,000 years of unrecorded history. Stories of the past just don't deal with facts. A lot of guess work and finger pointing.

Very disapointed my only Audiable dud

Very disappointed in this title, apart from the narrator preaching the unquestioned greatness of Native Americans , I felt hectored and condemned for just listening. All I wanted was facts and to make my own mind up but this s a hugely political book and just not my thing on this subject. I will look elsewhere . A real waste of a credit.

Interesting but one sided

Very good concise history and details of timeline events and peoples/nations.

Very simplistic - intelligent indigenous people could do no wrong , dumb settlers could do no right . Would prefer more nuance but good book overall

Brief Historical Overview of Native American History

This book provides a fairly brief overview of Native American history as seen from their point of view. It is clearly weighted towards their point of view, which makes it interesting. However, at times it uses fairly emotional language to reinforce the point and that sometimes makes it too obviously biased.

It would have been nice if it had more description and documentation to support the genocide argument. It would make the point more convincing rather than merely shocking to the reader.

This is a good point of departure for an interest in Native American history and an understanding of their current problems in the US in the present day.

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.
