In the Hands of the Great Spirit: The 20,000 Year History of American Indians.
By Jake Page.
A fascinating incite into the history of the Indian tribes of the Americas.
For a people who have had all of life’s follies and injustices thrown at them; it is incredible that they are still here.
I do find it a little disturbing, that very little is said about the decimation of these people since their first contact with Europeans.
Jake Page has managed to write a book that includes historical documents, archaeological artefacts and the Indians’ own oral legends, without making it heavy going for the average reader. This is not to say that he has over simplified what is a very complex subject, but that his narrative makes one feel the need to read the next page.
