Deserves, five stars.

Overall, a very good summary of the conquest of the Americas by Europeans and their attitude towards natives there.
Some souls might not like to hear the horrid truth due to the deep-rooted biases and whitewashing of the history by the conquistadores.

I'm glad this is still available

This is an informative look at the line of native Americans from the earliest communications on the Atlantic coast to their being driven off their lands by Europeans across the state to the West coast.
This may be a progressive view as one reviewer suggests but its what appeared.

Well written and balanced!

Well created but a lack of details. These histories were composed as short therapeutic overviews but if you are looking to inquire about the actual moments in this war, you will have to look further.

\Exemplary Historical

Those looking for a summary will appreciate this. It covers a tragic and entirely overlooked series of campaigns against tribal insurgencies.

Decent quick review.

One of the two most poignant circumstances of American history. How will we eternally come to terms with these actions?
True evil lies serving for the desire to expose it.

Factual Book Will Provide Rudimentary Knowledge

Following accounts of American Indian wars is an incoherent combination of stories without any solid analysis of the underlying dynamics at work; this audible is one of the few I have seen that provides a fine analysis in a concise and interesting way.

An excellent content.

An outstanding review of 300 years of Americans conducting a war against the Native American Indians. It is unfortunate to see so many wars over who owns the land.

Historical information not taught in schools

As a student of American History, I am currently in-depth studying the Indian Wars during the westward expansion by the immigrants before and after the Civil War. Reading in-depth with every audible I find that meets my desires for further information.

Captivating History you did it again!

Captivating History continues to impress me with their writing and concise historical research. The story of the pilgrim settlers and American Indian conflicts, the American Indian tribes, fighting to keep the land they had for generations.

Terrific listening!!!

This is super but, they have done it before. To have at hand all of these audibles makes it so convenient to refer back & forth. You don’t have to go & try to find the other audibles.
Captivating History has done wonders to enhance the historical knowledge of many different topics & subjects.

This audible bundle was both very interesting and very informative. All three audibles work together to explain this rather painfully complicated period in our nation's history. I highly recommend this audible bundle.
