North America has been home to thousands of cultures, each with its own traditions, languages, and stories. The first people to travel across the Bering Strait from Asia to North America established societies that expanded and evolved over thousands of years, independent of outside influence. Beginning in the 15th century, the arrival of European colonists, who brought with them their own languages, cultures, weapons, and diseases, transformed the lives of Native peoples and the land of North America forever.
View more than 120 full-color maps detailing migrations, tribal locations, historical landmarks, reservations, and other important settings related to American Indians, as well as chronicling their interactions with European colonists and other non-Native peoples. Complementing the maps, the text conveys the history, traditions, conflicts, land cessions, and contemporary ways of life of American Indians. More than 140 photographs and illustrations of people, places, and artifacts important to this history further enhance the text.
