Klappentext

"Iverson and Davies have teamed up to update this pithy, yet comprehensive study of Native peoples in the US. It is a taut overview of the major issues, events, and personalities in and about Indian Country and will admirably fit the bill for anyone interested in what has transpired during the last century and a quarter."
David Wilkins, University of Minnesota
