Summary

Praise for the previous edition:
"...splendid...a visually appealing, thorough examination of [Native] cultures..."—School Library Journal

"...well suited for the academic or public library."—Booklist

From the first peoples who traveled across the Bering Strait from Asia, North America has been home to thousands of diverse cultures who established societies that expanded and evolved for thousands of years, independent from outside influence. When European colonists traveled to North America in the 15th century, however, they brought with them their own languages, cultures, weapons, and diseases—transforming the lives of Native peoples and the land of North America forever.

Atlas of the North American Indian, Third Edition chronicles the travel and experiences of Native Americans from the first voyage to North America to the present day. This edition now features a bold full-color format and is bolstered by more than 120 full-color, detailed maps that cover important locations for American Indians, as well as highlighting their interactions with European colonists and other non-Native people. In addition, the updated text details the history, traditions, conflicts, land cessions, and contemporary ways of life for American Indians. This informative book is enhanced by more than 140 full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations of the people, places, and artifacts important in the history of Native America. Invaluable appendixes include a chronology of North American Native prehistory and history, a list of contemporary Indian nations in the United States, a list of contemporary Canadian First Nations, and a list of major Native place-names in the United States and Canada. A glossary, a bibliography, and indexes are also included.
