Overview

A perfect guide for writers, students, and historians!

Everyday Life Among the American Indians corrects decades of misinformation with insightful, accurate scholarship that belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in reading - or writing - the real story.

Covering more than 500 tribes and including maps, illustrations, chronologies, and detailed overviews of day-to-day life, this invaluable reference for writers, researchers and students is at once comprehensive and strikingly accessible. From the Louisiana Purchase to the Trail of Tears to Wounded Knee and beyond, the author vividly portrays the disappearing cultures of nineteenth-century American Indians with dignity and in astonishing detail, including information on: tribal leadership, weaponry and warfare, food and shelter, tools and medicine, languages, customs, religions, and crime and punishment.

Booknews
The details of daily life are summarized in this accessible volume, with the traditions of each tribe listed for each topic. The work is intended as a reference, rather than an exhaustive study. Moulton divides the material into government, trade, war, weapons, treaties, family life, food, clothing, accessories, shelter, transportation, medicine, entertainment, language, customs, and religion. The people, their homes and belongings are illustrated with b&w photos. A chronology, glossary, bibliography, and index are provided. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
