Product description

Some of you think an Indian is like a wild animal. This is a great mistake. I will tell you all about our people, and then you can judge whether an Indian is a man or not. . . What I have to say will come from my heart, and I will speak with a straight tongue, ' Chief Joseph, Nez Perce. Lee Miller was the writer and head of research for the television series based on 500 Nations - the acclaimed history of North American Indians. In FROM THE HEART she retieves the voices of Indian people over five centuries and weaves them into an alternative history of the continent. By doing so she introduces us to the grandeur and diversity of the nations who held the land before the first Europeans set foot in it. Here is the testimony of more than 250 Indian civilizations -of the Aztec king Moctezuma, the Seminole leader Osceola, Tecumseh, Cochise, Sitting Bull, Geronimo and Sarah Winnemucca - and of the white men who fought, betrayed and, on rare occasions, defended them.
