5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting reading..., Nov. 1 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: This Day In North American Indian History: Important Dates In The History Of North America's Native Peoples For Every Calendar Day (Hardcover)
I have been to the author's website many times, and liked it. The book has lots more information than the website, which is massive. It is interesting to read about so many of these events. Most of the descriptions are short, but considering there must be over 5,000 events, that is understandable.
There are quite a mix of illustrations that match an event on their page.
The sections on the tribal name meanings and the Indian "moons" was both fascinating, and fun.
The index is one of the most comprehensive I have ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and original historical reference, Jan. 10 2003
This review is from: This Day In North American Indian History: Important Dates In The History Of North America's Native Peoples For Every Calendar Day (Hardcover)
This Day In North American Indian History: Important Dates In The History Of North America's Native Peoples For Every Calendar Day by Phil Konstantin (freelance writer and member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma) is a unique and original historical reference. For each day of the calendar year, a momentous or significant occasion in Native American history is listed which occurred on that same day. Spanning over 500 years of recorded Native American culture, war, law, and societal change, This Day In North American Indian History is enhanced with a handful of black-and-white photographs, an extensive index, a bibliography, and three extended appendices (Tribal Names; Alternative Tribal Names; North American Indian Calendars). A meticulously compiled and "reader friendly" reference, This Day In North American Indian History is enthusiastically recommended as an informed and informative addition to any personal, academic, and community library Native American Studies collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Dare You to Read this One Day at a Time, Nov. 4 2003

This review is from: This Day In North American Indian History: Important Dates In The History Of North America's Native Peoples For Every Calendar Day (Hardcover)
This Day in American Indian History by Phil Konstantin is a fascinating resource for everyone interested in North American Indians. I think it would be especially useful for educators who want to include American Indian History in the classroom, but fear they have neither the time nor the resources to do it. Taking five minutes to select and read one event a day the class is a good way to raise awareness, open minds, and start discussions.
As the co-author of a reference book, American Indian Contributions to the World, I've learned to be very selective about the books I keep in my library. Phil has come up with an accurate and interesting volume that is filled with teachable moments. I couldn't put it down. This one is definitely a keeper.
