    I really wanted to read this but I haven’t received it yet. After 5 months of waiting I’m going to guess it isn’t coming.

    I found this book to be quite an interesting read. I enjoyed learning about all the different facets that native Americans gave our current culture, and how many of their beliefs relate to things we still do, or continue to advance on. I’ve always been very drawn to Native American culture so I appreciate being able to read this. I believe most people truly dont understand the depth of their contributions as they make up such a small fraction of the US now. This is the type of book they should have kids read in schools!

    What an eye opening read. As Weatherford clearly states, as an inhabitant of America who didn’t have a clue as to the major contributions of the American people. I ended the book asking myself – I wonder what our modern world would be like had the European settlers not used brute power to subdue the native people of the Americas.
