In this thoughtful book, Robert J. Muckle provides a brief, thematic overview of the key issues facing Indigenous peoples in North America from pre-history to the present. Rather than organize the book by culture area, the author situates culture area analysis within the thematic approach. As a whole, the text addresses topics such as historical context, archaeology, pre-history, traditional lifeways, colonialism, and contemporary Indigenous culture. The result is a remarkably affordable overview that offers a big-picture introduction while allowing readers to focus in on the individual topics that interest them the most.
