good book and I just wish there was also the view of the tribes on this issue. as native American it was a difficult book to get thru.

All things considered, an eye-opening presentation of atrocities that are not as well known as they should be. It was very interesting to learn about this history, but, to be fair, a large percentage of the book deals with Spanish colonization, more than English. This is not a judgment one way or the other regarding blame (and, as a listener, it probably should have been expected), but I don't think it was presented that clearly in the summary.
In addition, there are points at which the author seems to be oddly resentful of the attention paid to African slavery (at one point comparing the relative decimation of native civilizations to African ones, as if it were a competition of despair). I suppose this is somewhat understandable, considering the lack of notoriety for the topic of this book, and I took it as such.
