Summary

A superb introduction to the first Americans, this book brings the whole story of our country's native peoples into focus--who they were (and who they are today), what they wore, how they reared their children, worshipped, hunted, fought, and farmed. The Native Americans portrayed here are not the stereotyped characters of romantic legends, western movies, or frontier novels. They are instead the ingenious peoples who developed numerous cultures--as diverse as those of Europe--long before Columbus discovered the New World. Readers of all ages will appreciate and enjoy this authoritatively written, factually detailed, and highly illustrated book of Native American history and culture.
