The title makes this sound like a "Treaties For Dummies" book. It is anything but. It is a brilliant, easy to comprehend tour of how Euro Canadians tried to annihilate the First Peoples of this country, where it is all going now and what has to be done to correct the mess. Cogently written with extended appendices help you to understand why the Indian Act, although despised, cannot easily be replaced. It also contains the Calls To Action from the TRC.
