A new perspective on Native American history: A chronological account of its place on the world stage.

Native American History is a breakthrough reference guide, the first book of its kind to recognize and explore the rich, unfolding experiences of the indigenous American peoples as they evolved against a global backdrop. This fascinating historical narrative, presented in an illuminating and thought-provoking time-line format, sheds light on such events as:

  • The construction of pyramids—not only on the banks of the Nile but also on the banks of the Mississippi
  • The development of agriculture in both Mesopotamia and Mexico
  • The European discovery of a continent already inhabited by some 50 million people
  • The Native American influence on the ideas of the European Renaissance
  • The unacknowledged advancements in science and medicine created by the civilizations of the new world
  • Western Expansion and its impact on Native American land and traditions
  • The key contributions Native Americans brought to the Allied victory of World War II

And much more! This invaluable history takes an important first step toward a true understanding of the depth, breadth, and scope of a long-neglected aspect of our heritage.
