Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"As entertaining as it is thoughtful....Few contemporary writers have Weatherford's talent for making the deep sweep of history seem vital and immediate."

THE WASHINGTON POST

After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Indians of the Americas has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Indians to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 257-266).

This is tasty and fascinating history: how Bolivian silver promoted individual liberty, tales of potatoes and tomatoes, diplomacy that impressed Benjamin Franklin, and even more.
