Carl Waldman, a graduate of Hamilton College, is a former archivist for the New York State Historical Association. A freelance writer, he is the author of numerous books on American Indians, including Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, Third Edition for Facts On File and Checkmark Books. He is the coauthor of Facts On File's Encyclopedia of Exploration, a Booklist/RBB "Editors' Choice Reference Source, 2004" and a Library Journal "Best Reference Source, 2004." He lives in New York.From Library Journal:
This mistitled volume is in fact a compact yet wide-ranging account of Native American history and life illustrated with 122 maps. Waldman competently summarizes Indian prehistory, cultural patterns, contacts with Europeans, military events, and contemporary life; Braun's two-color maps successfully place all these data in geographical context. Useful appendixes include a historical chronology and lists of Native American place-names and of all tribes on the continent. A bibliography of over 200 recent items helps to overcome the inevitable limitations of a single-volume reference work. Ideal for general collections and public libraries. Michael Edmonds, State Historical Soc. of Wisconsin, Madison
