American Indian places : a historical guidebook
Kennedy, Frances H.
Adult Nonfiction E77.9 .A44 2008

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Library Journal:

This is a historical guide to 366 sites throughout the United States, all of which were utilized by native peoples prior to 1900 and are open to the public. Within five geographically organized sections, Kennedy (ed., The Civil War Battlefield Guide) lists the locales in chronological order. However, the only information provided for each place is its location. Travelers requiring information such as hours open to visitors will have to find it elsewhere because not only is it not here, there are no web addresses or phone numbers to help readers find out more about the respective places. The value in this work, however, is in the cultural and historical information contained within the essays connected to the entries. Many of these were written by either Native Americans who have a personal connection to the site or scholars who know the archaeological and historical record intimately through their own research. Interspersed among the entry essays are additional essays that contextualize the individual sites within the oral traditions and histories of the American Indian peoples who reside within the present-day United States of America.
