Very well written and informative I really enjoyed it. This book is full of interesting information, well researched. I received this book as part of a First reads giveaway at Goodreads.com.I am sorry to say that I did not finish this book and only gave it a 3 star because I could not finish it I was fascinated by the description and really wanted to increase my knowledge by reading it Unfortunately I guess I am still the same as I was in HS many years ago I felt I was in history class again and I found this boring and dry I tried really hard for days to go back and read but I was so bored by it I was sad I wasted my reading time with it I can honestly say that of the 35 pages I did read, it was very factual and a lot to be learned can be gleaned by this book But I have never been a history fan and I guess I still am not I bet that someone who enjoys history will and or things related to Native Americans, they will absolutely love this book I received this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.I thought this book was incredibly well researched but very poorly written The sentence structure was choppy, new concepts and important people were introduced too abruptly, with too little information about their relevance, and there was a lot of information that I think might have been important but was mentioned so briefly that it really didn t make sense From a research standpoint I think this book deserved a 5 star rating It s onvious the author really cared about the subject and from the notes at the end of the book you can tell he really sought out and used primary sources But the writing was so bad it was a struggle to get all the way through.
