Books about Native Americans

I have posted a new featured book called Native American Testimony edited by Peter Nabokov. This book is a very interesting culmination of testimonials by Native Americans about the coming of the white man. What makes this such a unique volume is that it is told from the perspective of the Native Americans rather than from the Anglo-American perspective with which we are all so familiar.

Peter Nabokov has provided us with a collection of testimonials that range from prophesies about the coming of the white man into Native American territory through the end of the twentieth century. As I continue reading through the book, I will probably discuss portions of it that I find interesting here.

This is one of three books which I will be reading for a Native American Studies course I am taking this semester. The other two are The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America by James Wilson and North American Indians: A Comprehensive Account by Alice B. Kehoe.

How would you rate this post?
