So, right, a book about Native American History in the US. I'm somewhat better on pre-Columbian Latin American history, but after reading this I have determined it's possible that I don't know anything because no one knows that much, not just because I'm an ignoramus.

Anyway, this is not quite as engrossing as some science-for-the-masses books, probably due to the paucity of source material. The author is careful to footnote things and admit what is unknown, so it's interesting and educational, but not quite "stay up all night reading it".
