Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America (American)
Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America (American) | James Wilson
2 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Now available in paperback, The Earth Shall Weep is a groundbreaking, critically acclaimed history of the Native American peoples. Combining traditional historical sources with new insights from ethnography, archaeology, Indian oral tradition, and years of his original research, James Wilson weaves a historical narrative that puts Native Americans at the center of their struggle for survival against the tide of invading European peoples and cultures.The Earth Shall Weep charts the collision course between Euro-Americans and the indigenous people of the continent, from the early interactions at English settlements on the Atlantic coast, through successive centuries of encroachment and outright warfare, to the new political force of the Native American activists of today. It is a clash that would ultimately result in the reduction of the Native American population from an estimated seven to ten million to 250,000 over a span of four hundred years, and change the face of the continent forever.A tour de force of narrative history, The Earth Shall Weep is a powerful, moving telling of the story of Native Americans that has become the new standard for future work in the field.

Outstanding. I am in awe of what this man has done, the breadth and depth of scholarship (which crosses academic disciplines), understanding and analysis, and the measured approach he has managed to take. Much of what was described made me disgusted with ‘humanity‘ but it‘s important to know about. Particularly impressed with how he communicates the ways in which people see and experience the world differently.

It's my day off since I'm working Saturday. I took a ride about 30 minutes away to a different library, and scored a few goodies from their used book store!
