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.

Great maps explained by easy to understand text passages are the hallmarks of this user friendly and highly informative, not to mention interesting, book. I'm very impressed by Carl Waldman's work, which is characterised not by fawning apologias but by respectful insightful investigatory analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! More than just an Atlas! April 20 2002
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive April 1 2002
A very good manual of information gathered on Native American culture. It has various chapters devoted to just plain loads of facts and figures and addresses and information on the North American Native Indian. I do not use it to read from cover to cover, but use it as a reference manual. I get lost in the amount of information.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-Organized, Informative, and Comprehensive Jan. 9 2001
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.
