Overview

Encompassing more than 500 years, American Indian History Day by Day: A Reference Guide to Events is a marvelous research tool. Students will learn what occurred on a specific day, read a brief description of events, and find suggested books and websites they can turn to for more information. The guide's unique treatment and chronological arrangement make it easy for students to better understand specific events in Native American history and to trace broad themes across time.

The book covers key occurrences in Native American history from 1492 to the present. It discusses native interactions with European explorers, missionaries and colonists, as well as the shifting Indian policies of the U.S. government since the nation's founding. Contemporary events, such as the opening of Indian casinos, are also covered. In addition to accessing comprehensive information about frequently researched topics in Native American history, students will benefit from discussions of lesser-known subjects and events whose causes and significance are often misunderstood.

Library Journal
The entries in this reference book are organized chronologically, creating, in essence, something like an "on this date in history" calendar. For example, under the entries for January 1, the reader can learn about events ranging from Delaware tribe leader Teedyuscung's party's killing of six colonists in 1756 and ensuing events to the documentation of the 1889 "first vision" of Wokvoka, a Paiute, which led to the Ghost Dance religion. Each date provides several brief yet informative entries on events throughout American Indian history, listing the year in which the event happened, books for further reading, and related websites. The concise entries will be useful to those who are interested in American Indian history on a particular date, though for the practical purposes of research, the book's organization scheme may not be the best. However, the book is well indexed; a comprehensive list of names, treaties, battles, and so forth will assist researchers in accessing the material. VERDICT While this title is very informative, its format makes it useful only to researchers who are studying events that happened on a certain date. Usually, this isn't the case when one is doing historical research, which tends to follow a more linear or thematic path. Still, the title is recommended for those who have a more personal interest in this topic and time to browse and learn about various American Indian-related happenings over time.—Annette Haldeman, Dept. of Legislative Svcs., Maryland General Assembly
