A Native History of Colonial America

A Native History of Colonial America

FROM THE PAGES OF HISTORY SERIES

Throughout the colonial era, Native Americans exerted decisive influence on the European colonies rapidly encroaching all around them between 1492 and 1776. But how, why, and at what cost? Dr. Richard Bell explores what life looked like in the contact zones where white settlers and Native peoples interacted.
