Book description
The first immigrants to the Americas at least 12,000 years ago were the Indians, a multiplicity of peoples some dominated by men, others by women who wielded the political power. Indians rarely engaged in large battles but almost always the man was the warrior and most conflicts were about glory and not killing.
There were many gods in the Indians' pantheon and many different beliefs about the origin of man and this earth.
This book brings the multifaceted universe of North American Indians and Eskimos into focus and presents a realistic view of how these remarkable people lived and died.
