Anyone doing research on the history of chemical and biological warfare will admire this comprehensive coverage of North America. Extensive notes, bibliography, index, and a listing of all known tribes and their poisons, are also extremely helpful in understanding mankind's arms race and role of poison in hunting--perhaps even contributing to the rapid extinction of mammoths.
