From Amazon- This is one of the classic textbooks for college classes on Native American history. The book is appropriate for either an introductory class on Native American history, or a more advanced class. The book covers the major topics of importance to both natives and non-natives over the course of 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s, such as tribal rights, gaming, Bureau of Indian affairs, treaties, schooling of native children, and compensation to Native Americans. The book is divided into major sections that cover the history of native - non-native relations in the US and in the land that eventually became the US. There is minimal mention of native americans in Mexico or Canada. Principal author teaches at Arizona State.
