Summary
The first book of American Indian quotations, this volume offers 800 quotations covering more than four centuries of American life. The quotations include the words of warriors, poets, politicians, doctors, lawyers, athletes, and others. Arranged chronologically, they enable one to follow the history of American Indians since Columbus through the words of those who experienced centuries of physical and cultural despoilment. Showing the real people in the tragic story of Indian life, the book includes quotes about historic incidents, in addition to Indian views on education, values, ecology, family, and religion. There is humor as well as declarations of defiance, war, and bloodshed. The language is rich and colorful, always moving. The book provides brief biographical information on those quoted, who include both contemporary and historical figures. The material is cross-referenced with author, subject and key word, and tribal indexes. The work is a reference book, a history book, and a resource for speakers and educators
