"No longer an archivist for the New York State Historical Association, Waldman has devoted himself to writing about Native Americans. Black- and-white maps and other illustration abound here, but the focus is on the text. Together they provide information on history, culture, languages, and lifeways of Native American groups across the US and Canada and on early peoples of Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Molly Braun, a freelance illustator and cartographer, contributes the original maps."
"...appears in a revised edition blending maps and illustration with a survey of the history, culture, languages and lives of American Indian groups. Most illustration is in black and white, with invaluable articles packing the presentation."
--Midwest Book Review
"A splendid revision of the 1985 work and a good companion to Waldman's Encylopedia of Native American Tribes. Both the content and the appearance of the book have been updated, and the result is a visually appealing, thorough examination of the cultures with new information about both past and contemporary issues. Following the detailed table of contents is a list of the maps with page numbers. Appendixes offer a chronology of Native history, a list of the members of the various U.S. and Canadian Indian nations, and more. There is a useful glossary, a comprehensive index, and a substantial bibliography. Black-and-white photographs and other illustrations clarify the descriptions in the text. This atlas is sufficiently different from other titles on the subject in content, scope, and organization and should be given serious consideration by libraries needing current information on Native Americans."
