"Well written, imagery-ridden...A tale of what was, what became, and what is today regarding the Indian relation to the European civilization that 'grafted' itself onto this ancient system.'"MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNEConventional American history holds that the white settlers of the New World re-created the societies they had known in England, France, and Spain. But as anthropologist Jack Weatherford, author of INDIAN GIVERS, brilliantly shows, the Europeans actually grafted their civilization onto the deep and nourishing roots of Native American customs and beliefs. Our place names, our farming and hunting techniques, our crafts, the very blood that flows in our veins--all derive from American Indians ways that we consistently fail to see.From the Trade Paperback edition.

An excellent account of the under appreciated contributions of Indian's to the intellectual, cultural and material wealth of American civilization. Further evidence of Columbus's observation that the indians we're indeed a people "in dios" - in God. Appears to be a second volume of Weatherfords "Indian Givers" book - many of the most surprising stories are in the first volume. I would read that first.

This book is obviously well researched. It gives a very different view of native history than many students of the 1950's through 1970's were taught in school. Well worth the time to explore this information packed read! I learned a lot, understood some things better and left with a desire to delve deeper... Always the signs of a good book!!!

Unusual book. Interesting and very worthwhile. A very different perspective on North American history. Even handed. Presents a lot of interesting information.

Some of the things the author brings out, I was unaware of. I read a lot of history, world, USA and legends from around the world. It was quite interesting. He had footnotes for most of his ideas, which I was impressed with.

So inspirational-devastating and encouraging. Required reading for anyone ambivalent about the immigration issues we face today. Don’t have four more words-wacked requirement

This is truly a great book, illustrating a history that is lost on most everyone. Too bad something like this book isn't required reading for high school students - it might make history a little more interesting.

Excellent overview of Native American people and their contributions to America through the ages.
Beautifully and clearly written, this is a wonderful story of the history of the Native American peoples, and their huge and ongoing contribution to modern North American life. Highly recommended.
