really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in September, 2009

Admittedly, the only reason why I picked up this book was because it was assigned for class. But, in all honestly, I enjoyed it. DuVal has a way of writing where she can pack significant events into just a few sentences. The book is obviously extremely well researched and along with the more "dull" history, she also has some very intriguing stories detailed as well. My only complaint with the book was that it seemed a bit redundant - but I suppose that was just to teach that these native people did the same thing for literally hundreds of years in an effort to keep their way of life. If you are at all interested in American Indian life I suggest taking a gander at this book, it's a new way of looking at history is a very select part of the nation.
