Chelsea House Publications. 1987. Thirty volumes glossy photo decorated covers. 9.8 x 8.2 x 3.5 inches. Excellent condition, library binding with very few stamps (most volumes appear to have never been read!) “Text is interspersed with black-and-white photographs, maps, and charts, as well as some color photographs and art reproductions. The history of the individual tribe's relationship with the federal government, the legal status of the tribe, and its heritage and cultural past. Numerous examples, the history of the tribes after the appearance of the white man and cultural clashes. Trading, hunting, farming, cooking, housing, crafts, and rituals are all examined, as is the history of racial bias and discrimination in educational, religious, and business matters. The extensive research which went into this comprehensive study would be of interest to most students of American history, but it should provide special insights for those interested in preserving and understanding an Indian heritage that could easily be lost. These clearly written books will fill a void by providing information on the American Indian tribes and culture that is not readily available elsewhere. Each volume takes a major American Indian tribe and details its history and current affairs. It also demonstrates the tribe's importance in the historical development of the United States and its impact on current events. Approximately 3300 pages.
