A book that grew from an eight-hour TV series, this is the epic and unforgettable story of the history, lore, legends, and legacy of North American Indians. With a highly accredited author and over 485 paintings, woodcuts, drawings, and photographs--329 in four-color--this oversized volume addresses a subject of never-ending fascination, providing detailed information about the lives, culture, and heritage of hundreds of North America's Indian nations. Never before has this subject been so thoroughly and deeply explored from the perspective of the Native American viewpoint.

Review:

The companion volume to the 1995 popular PBS series of the same name, 500 Nations is a richly illustrated, absorbingly written history of North America's indigenous peoples. Drawing on creation stories, oral history, archaeological evidence, federal documents, and hundreds of published sources, Josephy takes us on an encyclopedic journey through Native America's past and present. Few scholars have Josephy's command of his broad and complex subject, and fewer still write as dexterously. The result: the best one-volume, general-interest study of Native American history now available.

About the Author:

Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., is the author of many award-winning books, including The Patriot Chiefs, The Nez Perce Indians and the Opening of the Northwest, The Indian Heritage of America, Red Power, Now That the Buffalo's Gone, and The Civil War in the American West. He was born in 1912, grew up in New York City, and attended Harvard College. He was an associate editor of Time magazine and a vice president and editor of American Heritage magazine, was founding chairman of the board of trustees of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, and is past president of the Western History Association. He and his wife, Betty, live in Greenwich, Connecticut, and Joseph, Oregon.
