    This is an older and comprehensive classic on the native ethnic peoples who have dwelled in the Americas and Canada since time immemorial. Josephy really does a wonderful job of synthesizing all the cultural and language groups. The best of its kind!

  • By A. Starkey on October 8, 2011

    There are 28 chapters that are each dedicated to a certain time or place of the Indians in North, Central, and South America.Each chapter explains the cutoms, language, temperment and names of the various groups who lived in each region. A few maps are throughout the book depecting where various groups lived.The book is definately a textbook with a wealth of information and not a novel which can be read quickly. However, the information is presented in an informative way and is very interesting, with a large bibliography and index.

    First published in 1968, the paperback I have is from 1976 (hence the term "Indian" instead of the current "Native American" usage). Most of the book is devoted to chapters on each of the major tribal regions, from Alaska and Canada to South America. There are also chapters on "The White Man's Dept to Indians" and "The White Man's Conquest of the Indians," as well as the state of Indian life in the 1960s.

    I was assigned this book for a continuing education class and at first thought it would another poor me story but it is not. It is vibrant and well done covering the history of the American Indian from the earliest known arrival to the 1980s. The only fault I found was that it should be updated and reprinted. Well done Alvin Josephy.
