9780684855776: In the Hands of the Great Spirit: The 20,000-Year History of American Indians

Today, some two million American Indians inhabit the United States, less than one percent of the nation's population. Their origins have always been viewed from a 500-year-old perspective—from the point of view of the Europeans who “discovered” the New World. Yet the true story of the American Indians begins some seventeen thousand years ago—and it is past due for a telling that shows Indians as they are, rather than as westerners wish them to be.

Recent archaeological findings, newly discovered written accounts, and never-before-published records have contributed to a whole new understanding of our country's oldest ancestors. Drawing upon the latest research, as well as his own personal experience living among the Hopi tribes, acclaimed author and former Natural History magazine editor Jake Page covers all aspects of Indian life throughout the ages. From the Pleistocene era to Custer's Last Stand, the Trail of Tears to the Indian Civil Rights Act, the establishment of reservations to the negotiation of casino property, In the Hands of the Great Spirit reveals the astonishing endurance of a group of people whose experience is as varied as the world is old.

Review:

Santa Fe New Mexican A history survey and narrative with no equal, In the Hands of the Great Spirit is a work that belongs on the shelves of anyone who aims to gain a deeper understanding of the history, suffering, and triumphs of this land's original inhabitants.

Phoenix New Times Page brings scholarly detail as well as literary flair to this epic account.

Publishers Weekly (starred review) A magnum opus...fills an enormous gap in the popular historical literature.

The Washington Post Judicious, as well as flowing, lucid, and satisfying....Great praise goes to Page for joining so many others in getting out the story of Indian nations.

Descrizione libro Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the past two decades, a new breed of historians, anthropologists and archaeologist have uncovered a fuller, richer and surprising view of the entire American Indian experience. Jake Page, one of the Southwest s most distinguished writers and a long time student of Indian history, weaves these vast threads of information - including historical documents, archaeological artefacts and the Indians oral legends - into a compelling narrative. Today, we know that the first Americans arrived here long before the once-accepted date of 11,500 years ago. We know that Indian life before Columbus featured massive upheavals, and that life after Columbus was affected more by disease and do-gooders than gunslingers. This is the true history of the Indians, from the long lost moundbuilding societies of the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, to the waves of confederation from King Phillip to Tecumseh, all the way to the astonishing coast-to-coast revival of the past few decades.
