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.

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.
