Author Essay

This book is a great resource for students and history buffs alike.  It stands out from other books of its kind for several reasons:  

First, it’s a lot more accessible than lengthy historical ‘tomes’ that take hours to search through just to find a quick fact or piece of information.  Because of the chronological way that it’s organized and the concise, yet information-packed entries, it’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for right off the bat.  

Second, this book puts Native American history in context with other key events going on in the world, which gives the reader perspective on how events on both sides of the Atlantic influenced each other.  

Lastly, it’s totally comprehensive in scope.  Whereas many books treat the subject with an ethnocentric approach and only cover events taking place after the Europeans set foot on American soil, this one goes all the way back to the very origins of these indigenous people around 28,000 B.C.— truly ancient history!  And it also covers events right up to modern times, highlighting the issues and concerns faced by today’s Native Americans.
