The stories written in this book are typical of those found throughout history. The explorers of the old world discovered a continent that was new to them, and they jabbed their flag into the ground and claimed that land for their sovereign. There was no regard for the native peoples of that land. At first, welcoming the Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, French, and English onto their shores, the Indians soon discovered that the strangers in their land were not there to live peacefully beside the Indian. The newcomers were interested in taking the riches of their lands back to their home country, taking over the land and dominating and subduing the native people. When war broke out between two white factions, many times the Indians chose the losing side because they were promised the return of their lands if they won. When the wars were over, the white losers were banished back to where they came from while the Indian was more feared and hated than ever before.
