Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

This mistitled volume is in fact a compact yet wide-ranging account of Native American history and life illustrated with 122 maps. Waldman competently summarizes Indian prehistory, cultural patterns, contacts with Europeans, military events, and contemporary life; Braun's two-color maps successfully place all these data in geographical context. Useful appendixes include a historical chronology and lists of Native American place-names and of all tribes on the continent. A bibliography of over 200 recent items helps to overcome the inevitable limitations of a single-volume reference work. Ideal for general collections and public libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-Organized, Informative, and Comprehensive Jan. 9 2001
Format:Paperback
I have always had an interest in the Native American history and tradition. I have bought several books in the past and been upset that they either seem to misrepresent the Indians or were too stereotypical. This book is not like that at all. In fact, this is one of the most informative, accurate and indispensable books that I have read regarding the Native American. The book covers almost every (if not every) Native American tribe known. Moreover, this book not only delineates their culture, locations, skills, history, etc., but it provides a chronology of prehistory and history of the Native American in one of the book's 7 appendices. This text provides the reader with information and facts about the ancient Indians, Geography (great maps), the art and technology, and even their clothing and transportation. This is definitely an invaluable tool for those who simply want to gain a greater understanding of Native Americans, or those who actually want to do some more serious research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for classroom use - a real bargain Nov. 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
It's actually hard, finding good books on American Indian topics that work in the classroom (I teach at a medium-sized public university). There are plenty of out-of-date books. Lots of terrible "pc" books. But few that actually convey information in an attractive and interesting fashion. This is definitely one of the latter type. The maps are clear, the illustrations accurate, and the amount of information presented is surprising. There's a tremendous amount of material packed between the covers of the "Atlas"---and it's a good deal more than a collection of maps. This is one of those books that some students---especially those planning on becoming teachers---may actually decide to keep. My own copy is well-worn from use, and often consult it to clear up questions both large and small. The best comprehensive source I've seen for this kind of money.

I bought this book because I needed to have a clearer geographical picture on the North American Indian Nations covered by "500 Nations" (the TV-series and the CD-ROM). What I got is a lot more than I expected! The title "Atlas..." is truly an understatement! This book covers the geography, the social and historical issues involved in the genesis and evolution of these Great Nations!
If you're looking for a very extensive reference work on the North American Indian Nations, buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Resource May 24 2000
Format:Paperback
"Atlas of the North American Indian" has been a very helpful resource in my studies of American tribes. I have endeavored in the past few years to create a comprehensive map of North American tribes at the point in which they were first discovered by those of European descent. This book by Carl Waldman has been extremely important in getting the information needed to further my project. Thank-you Mr. Waldman for writing such an informative work.

Highly recommended due to it's unbiased reporting of a long and very complex subject. It professionally avoids all the syrupy PC sentimentalism of the 90s "diversity" campaigns. Just the facts, figures, graphs, and awesome maps!! Refreshing break from all the extreme-leftist propaganda out there. Highly recommended for secondary teachers studying for the SS Praxis and SS SSAT Exams.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! More than just an Atlas! April 20 2002
Format:Paperback
They weren't joking when they said this was an exhaustive book, information wise. It's incredible! Not only do you have maps of everything from migrations of tribes to peyote usage, you also have chapter after chapter of the different cultural groups, full of details about daily life, wars, conflicts with the white settlers, etc.
I use mine for reference--it's an amazing book. Get it!
