our past history

by Ruth on Oct 3, 2013

A VERY INTERESTING CHRONICAL OF OUR INDIAN FOR-FATHERS.

Eye opener

If you really want to know how the West the East, the South and the North were won than you need to read this book. This book saddens my heart to know that we Americans who live in the home of the brave and the land of the free took those rights from so many.

Enduring "American" Classic

by ElliotLittleFire on Jul 24, 2009

Anyone interested in "American" history might do well to start at the real beginning with the First People. I find reading this book both painful and essential, a sort of the coming-of-age ritual I never received in my own culture. We are given a context for a history that has been glorified as much of US "foreign" affairs has been and is reported to the citizenry in an effort to direct one's thinking and feeling. This is an exquisite opportunity to gain insight into other ways of seeing and acting as human beings.

Better than counting

by lauraatmoody on Jul 10, 2007

I had to read this book for an American history class in High School. As the good student that I was, I read every required reading - with the exception of this book. I just could not get through it without falling asleep, sans counting sheep.

Shocking, True Accounts

by tms45 on Jul 8, 2007

This book really opened my eyes to how the Indians were treated by the US government. They were given promises by our military leaders, but the promises were not kept. Indians were thought of as not being human, but only as savages. The land belonged to the Indians first, but because of settlers moving westward, they took over the land and the Indians were made to live in reservations. The book gives a brief history of famous chiefs from various tribes in the country. This is a book that, once you start reading it, you wont want to put it down. This is American history that should be read again and again by all people.
