Description:

A comprehensive narrative of the history of Native Americans that covers the complexity and diversity of Native history from their arrival on this continent to the twenty-first century. Through its chronological organization, the text clearly addresses the theme that Indians themselves have consciously struggled to preserve their cultures and their unique place in America and that they have worked to shape their own future. The authors address the cultural mechanisms that have allowed Indians to remain true to their own values while adapting to a rapidly and ever-changing world.
