More About The Historical Atlas of Native Americans by Dr. Ian Barnes
 
 
 
Overview

This fascinating book explores the history of the native peoples of North America, from the early arrival of humans from Asia and their migration throughout the continent, the first and subsequently devastating contacts with European explorers and settlers, to the present day plight of the surviving tribes and their attempts to adapt to modern society. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of women in tribal society, the traditional familial and societal structures of Native Americans, and their diverse cultural values and practices.

The authoritative, absorbing text is illuminated with beautifully illustrated maps showing the movements of the peoples and over 100 color photographs and illustrations plus reproductions of contemporary paintings depicting archaeological sites, artifacts, battles and great events, and the people involved: the chiefs and generals as well as the ordinary Indians and lost ways of life.
