This book by the author of several outstanding studies of ancient peoples vividly recounts the story of the Native Americans — from their earliest beginnings as immigrants from the Asian mainland, to their lives as tragic figures on U. S. government-authorized reservations.
A story of great depth and perspective, Everyday Life of the North American Indian
traces the subjects' various roles in the New World: as nomad, hunter, and farmer; as athlete, warrior, parent, and spouse; as witch doctor, worshipper, artist, and craftsman.
Enhanced with more than 100 illustrations, this comprehensive, highly readable book will be valued by students of American history and welcomed by all those intrigued by Native American culture.
Reprint of the B. T. Batsford Ltd., London, 1979 edition.
