The Native American Experience

£19.99

Product description


Without a doubt, there is one event in the history of Native Americans that overshadows all others in its impact on their culture - the discovery of the Western Hemisphere by European explorers. This catastrophic event is at the centre of "The Native American Experience", which, having given an overview of Aboriginal concepts and history, traces the tumultuous relationship between Native Americans and Western settlers. The book takes a vital view on the relationship between Native Americans and their cultural roots in the modern world, tracing their history into the contemporary era with the support of facsimile documents from key US archives, which bring their story to life.

Native Americans have fascinated the world ever since European explorers discovered the Western Hemisphere. 'The Native American Experience' tells their story from migration during the Ice age to the influence of Native American culture today, examining early Native American tribal history and the turbulent relationship between Native Americans and Western settlers. Contains over 200 illustrations and 30 rare and newly researched removable facsimile documents of historic importance.

This copy is in excellent condition. Slipcase very good, with slight rubbing on one edge. Very clean, with no marks.
