I have found this book to be enlightening in the fact that someone has finally written down how Native history has happened! I was astounded to learn about all the laws etc. the government has passed against Native Americans and the fact that no one has questioned any of them. If you would like to get a little closer to the struggle we as Native Americans continue to face, please read this book. Personally, I have to have a copy of this book nearby at all times, just to remind me of what the United States government is really capable of, and it is NOT 'helping' my Native brothers and sisters. Read it.
