Great Plains Indians, Paperback / softback Book

Great Plains Indians Paperback / softback

Part of the Discover the Great Plains series


David J. Wishart's Great Plains Indians covers thirteen thousand years of fascinating, dynamic, and often tragic history. From a hunting and gathering lifestyle to first contact with Europeans to land dispossession to claims cases, and much more, Wishart takes a wide-angle look at one of the most significant groups of people in the country.

Myriad internal and external forces have profoundly shaped Indian lives on the Great Plains.

Those forces-the environment, religion, tradition, guns, disease, government policy-have written their way into this history.

Wishart spans the vastness of Indian time on the Great Plains, bringing the reader up to date on reservation conditions and rebounding populations in a sea of rural population decline. Great Plains Indians is a compelling introduction to Indian life on the Great Plains from thirteen thousand years ago to the present.
