Drawing on a wide range of oral and archival sources from across the West, Colin G.

excellent huge 400 page over view of native americans and their interactions with Europeans.

Strictly written about North America it was a relief not to have mezo-america to deal with. I had no idea the Osages were such an important tribe.

Excellent details on how smallpox changed the face of Native Americans before we took over the plains in 1804.
