Title: This Day in North American Indian History
Author: Phil Konstantin
Pages: 480 Hardcover
Dimensions: 10” x 8”
By now the myth of the ''discovery'' and peopling of North America has passed into the historical record, with the idea of an empty land being tamed by toil and westward expansion giving way to a more accurate picture of steady trade, virtually nonstop wars and moments of cooperation between the native Americans and the European immigrants. Freelancer Konstantin shows readers just how many treaties, battles, settlements and resettlements, government acts, executive orders and surprise attacks comprise this troubled history. Covering territory from ''Panama to the North Pole'' and dates from the 16th century to the present, this exhaustive look at the plight of North America's indigenous people is both instructive and downright depressing. With its neutral tone and format, literally marking events over 365 days of the calendar year, it should be an important resource for furthering the cause of corrective history.
