Summary "This work is not offered in any sense as a history of the American Indians or even a comprehensive account of white-Indian relations. It is, rather, an effort to suggest the nature of that interchange, of its inherent drama and abiding human interest; and to trace the hold that Indian culture has had on the imagination of the European settlers who ventured to the part of the New World that became the United States"-- Preface.
Subject Indians of North America -- History.
