Campbell's book has a vast scope covering all Native American languages, so only it can provide succinct information about each family of languages. It gives the state of art of comparative linguistics of American Indian languages but it lacks for a detailed linguistic typology and grammar of the languages. In addition to the catalogue of languages, it contains a very interesting history of American Indian Linguistics and chapters about genetic relationships with the methods and proposals of linguistics stocks. Campbell assesses these proposals in an idiosyncratic system, by assigning a probability of relationship between languages. However the criteria for such probabilities are not explicit for each proposal (except for three exemplary cases), although there is a chapter devoted to such criteria in general terms. Campbell usually remains skeptical on far-reaching proposals, such Greenberg's Amerind, rejecting the pronoun argument (the widespread pattern n-, m- for 1st and 2nd person) and claiming for stricter demonstrations. In sum, this book is a hallmark in the field of American Indian Linguistics.
