Native American activist Vine Deloria, Jr., whose national bestseller Custer Died for Your Sins changed the public's view of Native Americans, now offers a collection of scintillating essays that pits modern science against American Indian oral history.

This book will challenge every single scientific fact that you thought was true. Think the Native Americans crossed the Bering Land-Sea Bridge? Do you think that major catastrophes never happened on this continent? Do you think that the Native Americans were not an advanced civilization? How do you explain scientific "anomolies"? Yes, I found myself arguing with Vine Deloria, Jr., throughout the text. BUT, it did open my mind to other possibilities and explanations of American Natural History. This book will also make you realize that more work needs to be done in all scientific fields before we start drawing some terribly misguided assumptions.
