Overview

This book provides the first comprehensive history of the Native Peoples of North America from their arrival in the western hemisphere to the present.

It also examines the development of a pan-Indian identity since the nineteenth century and provides a comparison not found in other histories of how Native Peoples have fared in Canada and the United States.
