Part of the Peoples of North America series
For centuries, the Peoples of North America hunted, farmed, and fought throughout the continent’s diverse landscape of dense woodlands, gleaming lakes, rugged canyons, and rolling plains. This series examines the cultures and lifestyles of these peoples as leaders, warriors, and families throughout history, as well as the immediate and long-term effects of European contact and conflict. Presented with objective coverage and eyewitness accounts, each title also includes a traditional legend and a focus on the present-day efforts of these peoples to retain their culture in a changing world.
