First Peoples 4e: A Documentary Survey of American Indian History


First Peoples 4e: A Documentary Survey of American Indian History Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First Peoples distinctive approach continues to make it the bestselling and most highly acclaimed text for the American Indian history survey. Respected scholar Colin G. Calloway provides a solid foundation grounded in timely scholarship and a narrative that brings a largely untold history to students. The signature “docutext” format of First Peoples strikes the ideal balance, combining in every chapter a compelling narrative and rich written and visual documents from Native and non-Native voices alike. An expansion by two full chapters presents a more diverse and nuanced picture of the history of Native peoples in America. Read the preface.
