This riveting volume dispels the sanitized history surrounding Native American practices toward their enemies that preceded the European exploration and colonization of North America. We abandon truth when we gloss over the clashes between Native Americans and Europeans, encounters of parties equally matched in barbarity, says George Franklin Feldman, We neglect true history when we hide the uniqueness of the varied cultures that evolved during the thousands of years before Europeans invaded North America. The research is impeccable, the writing sparkling, and the evidence incontrovertible: headhunting and cannibalism were practiced by many of the native peoples of North America.

Review: Cannibalism, Headhunting and Human Sacrifice in North America: A History Forgotten

User Review  - Fredrick Danysh - Goodreads

This book claims to be about human sacrifice and cannibalism in North America. It pretty much addresses mostly second-hand reports of such behavior concentrating on the practices of the Natives while barely touching on the behavior of non-Native Americans. Read full review

Quite a comprehensive and serious history lesson. More in-depth than I was anticipating, but enjoyable and very informative. Not for the squeamish. Read full review
