I enjoyed this short book because I learned some interesting facts regarding Native American history that I was unaware of. It's written in a fairly conversational tone and is, overall, a fascinating subject. My only negative is that it had a very disjointed feel and was rather broken up throughout.

My advice take it all with a grain of salt.
