Well presented but sure to be controversial
Were the American Indians always environmentalists, ecologists, conservations or preservationists, as they are almost invariably presented today? Or is this a modern construct with huge cultural, political and social results? Krech argues that the NA's were not the gentle walkers of the earth as they are presented today (in print, TV & political ads) but that the Indian waste was exacerbated by European desires for trade goods--furs, etc. Even if you do not totally agree with the book's thesis, its a great place to start.....Was this review helpful?
