The selections, which include magazine articles, speeches, a white paper, and introductions and chapters of books, give a generous and reasoned view of Indian history in North America from first settlements in the East to the long trek of the Nez Perce Indians in the Northwest. The essays deal with the origins of still unresolved troubles with treaties and territories to fishing and land rights, and who should own archeological finds, as well as the ideologies that underpin our Indian policy. Taken together, the pieces give a revelatory introduction to American Indian history, a history that continues both to fascinate and inform.
