Publisher's Summary

After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Indians of the Americas has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Indians to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.


What the Critics Say

"By showing how the world was changed through these contributions, the author gives a greater appreciation of the Indians of America to readers. A fine synthesis book for global studies programs as well as American history." (School Library Journal)

All things Jack Weatherford

This fellow does not write bad books. In fact, it seems, he only writes great books. Anytime you want a truly worthwhile revisionist history and you want a great narration thrown in, just pickup a Jack Weatherford book on Audible... yes, sounds like a commercial. But it's all true. Who knew those "savages" contributed so much.
