Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book is not only a work of history, it makes history.... We desperately need to hear this story if we are to save the earth, the sky, the water, the air — save ourselves.... I thank Donald Grinde and Bruce Johansen for their eloquent and powerful contribution to our education". (Howard Zinn)<P>"A dense, hard-hitting well-documented work ... Ecocide of Native America offers a much needed option to European perspectives of history.... It is a valuable alternative textbook, if you can hold with its difficult truths". (New Mexican)<P>The book includes the moving testimony of those who continue to experience the slow death of their lands, their means of subsistence, their communities, even as environmentalists look to Native American ecological precedents for solutions to our common global catastrophe.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-298) and index.
