Who were the first settlers in North America? Where did they come from? How did they survive? In this expansive one-volume account of the native peoples of North America, eminent historian William Brandon who devoted much of his life to examining this subject presents this revelatory history of the development and culture of the native peoples of North America, from their incipience through the late nineteenth century. Among those from Central America were the art-obsessed Mayans and Olmecs from North America came the Ojibwa, Powhatan, Cree, Illinois, Apache, Cherokee, Natchez, Sioux, and many others. In The Rise and Fall of North American Indians, Brandon brings this world to life and chronicles ten thousand years of Indian history.
"One of the more well-rounded history books on the North American Indians. The book is objective and pays great attention to detail." – Colorado Springs Gazette
"It’s a sweeping and impassioned survey that tells the stories of all kinds of tribes, their encounters with white people, and the evolution of Indian-White relations that would become the blueprint for the eventual near-extinction of not just tribes, but an entire culture." – Midwest Book Review
