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!

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 Certainly the author has a bias, but it's hard to argue with the historical documents she quotes from - orders from military personnel to clear Native peoples from their lands; personal correspondence specifically arguing that the Natives must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

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.

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.
