From early Spanish and Portuguese exploration to the surrender of Geronimo, from the decline of the fur trade to the Wounded Knee massacre, from smallpox epidemics and broken treaties to the invention of the Cherokee alphabet, from Tecumseh's rebellion to the Native American Church, from the first journey across the Bering land bridge to the occupation of Alcatraz Island, the Chronology presents a fascinating look into the sweeping changes of history, wars and conflicts, government policies, social progress, and cultural changes affecting peoples on all sides in the New World.
