This superb volume is a comprehensive survey of the Native American people, their weapons, and their way of life and culture. Section One looks at the origins and development of the Native Americans, surveying the numerous tribes from the Catawba of the Southeast, to the Crow of the Great Plains and Aleut and Inuit tribes of the Arctic. Section Two takes a detailed look at the range of hunting and war weapons used from the Stone Age to the arrival of modern weaponry in the late 19th century. Beginning with simple striking weapons, the text moves on to discuss cutting and piercing weapons, defensive weapons, and the so-called 'spiritual weapons' to protect the warrior in battle. The final section probes the evolution of Native American society, examining aspects such as domestic and social life, transport and trade, recreation and pastimes, arts and crafts, and religion, history and myths. Beautifully illustrated, The American Indians offers a unique insight to these fascinating peoples, their culture and traditions.
