Walk with the indigenous people who settled North America —and with their descendants, whose more than 500 tribes range from the Arctic Circle across the Great Plains and to the Eastern Seaboard. Lakota, Cherokee, Navajo, Haida: these groups and many others are profiled in engaging entries and portrayed in magnificent images and maps that authentically evoke each tribe's history and character. Organized into eight geographical regions, this encyclopedic reference gives fascinating details about key tribes within each area: their beliefs, sustenance, shelter, alliances, interaction with nature, historic events, and more. Learn about the spiritual and cultural traditions of Native Americans across the continent. Investigate how and when each tribe came into contact with Europeans, and how their lives changed. This is the definitive, insightful reference on Native Americans, captivating and informative for all who appreciate history, diverse cultures, stunning images, and the artistry of maps.

Several sections of the book, you have to skip the next few pages to find where the contents continue. It makes for a difficult read to follow.

More than met my expectations!


My husband is part Native American Indian and this book helped him to further pursue his "roots". He was given this book as a gift.

Try this...Mahikan and Mohican are not the same as Mohegan~ and~ Mahican is neither, either of any of the two above...I want the American Public to know. ...Chapter 1 Northeast heads South... the 'split in format' is of interest..pp61-64, and 3 Somewhat inaccurate, but all in all a gorgeous book...
