Indians in the Americas: The Untold Story
Many books over the years have promised to tell the true story of the Native American Indians. Many, however, have been filled with misinformation or derogatory views. Finally here is a book that the Native American can believe in. This well researched book tells the true story of Native American accomplishments, challenges and struggles and is a gold mine for the serious researcher. It includes extensive notes to the text and over 500 photographs and illustrations -- many that have never before been published. The author, after 20 years of research, has attempted to provide the world with the most truthful and accurate portrayal of the Native American Indians. Every serious researcher and Native American family should have this ground-breaking book.
What people are saying - Write a review
A reviewer bashed this book because of criticism about the author's discussion of how the earth was created. This reviewer obviously did not read beyond the first two pages of the book. If he had he would have learned a lot about a topic he obviously has no knowledge or interest in. I am ordering the complete book because what I did preview, I know to be true and I want to read the rest of it. There is a renewed interest in French Canadian Metis history of New France which reached Michigan and many other states all the way to Louisiana which this book discusses, along with many other topics of interest about indigenous people.
A bad joke of a book. So horribly researched and out of context that it makes my head spin.
This "untold story" for "every Native American family" is so full - and unquestioningly so - of crackpot theories that have literally been discounted for hundreds of years.
On page TWO (yes, and the first page has its monstrosities too) the Universe (not the Earth, by some strange luck) was created by meteors. Yes, the Universe was created by meteors.
"The most recent scientific theory is that our universe was formed about 4.5 billion years ago under a continual bombardment of meteors."
(One is left to wonder about what universe the meteors might belong to. What came first? The Universe or the meteors?)
Considering that everything from A to Z in this book is tripe, I recommend you read a decent account of history, like "Guns, Germs and Steel" - and easy to read, well-received book about the origins of everything human.
Avoid this book like a blanket from Jeffrey Amherst!
