Nicely put together. Lots of beautiful photographs and okay text. The narrative is sparse, but for an overall introduction to the many Indian nations of North America, it's a good place to start. The maps are partcularly helpful in showing where each tribe lived and where the reservations are now. Of course, it's a terribly sad story, but it's one we should all be aware of.
