A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY:

A CHRONOLOGICAL ACCOUNT OF ITS PLACE ON THE WORLD STAGE.

Native American History is a breakthrough reference guide, the first book of its kind to recognize and explore the rich, unfolding experiences of the indigenous American peoples as they evolved against a global backdrop. This fascinating historical narrative, presented in an illuminating and thought-provoking time-line format, sheds light on such events as:

* The construction of pyramids--not only on the banks of the Nile but also on the banks of the Mississippi

* The development of agriculture in both Mesopotamia and Mexico

* The European discovery of a continent already inhabited by some 50 million people

* The Native American influence on the ideas of the European Renaissance

* The unacknowledged advancements in science and medicine created by the civilizations of the new world

* Western Expansion and its impact on Native American land and traditions

* The key contributions Native Americans brought to the Allied victory of World War II

And much more!

This invaluable history takes an important first step toward a true understanding of the depth, breadth, and scope of a long-neglected aspect of our heritage.
