Well it's my fault for not realizing that in the 1800's Indians were already living like the European settlers in many ways and had been pushed off their lands to reservations. So the everyday life wasn't what I really wanted to read about. This is more a history book than anthropology. It's a pretty dry read. All facts, no real interesting stories. The writing feels more academic than entertaining. But it doesn't talk about the real Indians. Only those run down wretches who'd lost everything.
