Synopsis:

From a professor of anthropology comes a startling look at the historic truths and romantic falsehoods about Native Americans and their relationship to nature, before and after Europeans arrived in North America.


Review:

"...much of [this book's] appeal lies in its delimited peek into historical and anthropological fracases that are fascinating in a small dose but would quickly become dreary if you had to spend your life trapped inside them....Krech will surely be accused of being anti-Indian and anti-environmentalist, but what he really seems to be is anti-anachronist."

Nicholas Lemann, New Yorker, 09/13/1999

Review:

"Krech presents evidence sufficient to peel away beliefs from facts until finally the concept of the Ecological Indian as ecologist ad conservationist erodes. This book is a good story and first-rate social science, but it is not without passion....Beyond the scholarly view of Native Americans, Krech's book quietly pleads that we continually test our cultural vision against reality, lest we simplify ourselves to a set of stereotypes and lose forever the vibrancy of American multi-cultural community life."

Mark S. Fleisher, New York Times Book Review, 10/17/1999
