This is the history of Native Americans told by a non Native American who grew up on a ranch in Texas and has been fascinated by Native American culture since childhood The book was published in 1973 so this may explain why the author uses the name Indians I found the book fascinating I don t know much about Native American apart from what I learned from old John Wayne s Western movies or recently Kevin Costner s Dances with wolves This book gives an idea of how Native American lived livelihood religious practises beliefs clothes and It s a visual feast because everything is illustrated with really gorgeous pictures and drawings The hardest part of this book is the story of the Native Americans war against American settlers a bloodbath made of massacres after massacres I didn t have the feeling that the author was taking anyone s side Now I think I have to find a reference book on native American history preferably written by Native Americans and compare the narratives
