    A book, full of correct Native American Historical Facts...But overly dry, like reading a PhD Dissertation and as equally as boring.I found the writing styles to be erudite and overly affected... this book isn't for the average reader who wants to read a true account of Native History, this is for the overly educated that like theses, dissertations, & other scholarly offerings.I felt as if the authors were trying to prove themselves to be of the higher level of educational ranks, thereby negating the value of this book in relation to basic education usage... For that reason, I believe that most people will not read this book because of the scholarly content, which is too bad.
