Overview

Based in part on interviews with notable Native Americans-including Adam Fortunate Eagle, Johnny Bear Contreas, and Waneek Horn-Miller-and featuring removable facsimiles of rare documents from U.S. archives and private collections, this is a powerful you-are-there account of American history as seen through the eyes of the people who were here first. Readers will gain a whole new perspective on the past as they share the outlook of those who view the “discovery” of America as one of history's great tragedies.

An issue of The Cherokee Phoenix newspaper from 1828
A seventeenth century map of the New World
