What were North American Indians really like?Too often, we base our perceptions of North American Indians on what we see in the movies or on television. In many instances these perceptions are misleading or simply incorrect. Now, with growing recognition of our country's valuable cultural heritage comes a renewed interest in and a new appreciation for North America's first inhabitants.Accented with over one hundred sketches and paintings by the author, Great Lakes Indians make an important contribution toward a better understanding of the North American Indians who lived in this region. The striking illustrations will help you visualize and understand many interesting features of Indian life.This book provides a thorough history of the people of the Great Lakes region. Easy-to-read maps show the areas inhabited by each culture group, and lists of identifying names add to the book's usefulness. Brief surveys of each group's history and movement help to complete the overall picture.
