From School Library Journal:

Gr 5 Up--In this overview, McCormick calmly and clearly presents the history of relationships between Native Americans and white settlers. Sufficient background is provided to enable readers to understand the basics of the situations without becoming bogged down in details. Historical and cultural beliefs and behaviors are presented to help explain why each group acted as it did. The writing is lively and organized efficiently enough to invite and encourage research. The chapters are laced with cited quotations to add perspective and authenticity. The illustrations include reproductions of documents, drawings, paintings, and photographs. Because they are all in black and white and mostly small, they fail to give this book the visual impact it deserves. The author does a superb job of presenting facts and opinions while allowing readers to draw conclusions. Most young people will come away from this volume with a new appreciation of the tribulations of Native Americans, from the U.S. government's establishment of the first official reservation in 1638 to the present day. An excellent addition to round out any collection.
