What ages would I recommend it too? Ten and up.

Length? A few days.

Characters? Memorable, several characters.

Setting? Real world pre-history until the 1970.

Written approximately? 1974.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? Ready to read more.

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. How has the story changed since 1970?

Short storyline: A gripping history of Native Americans from pre-history until early 1970's.

Notes for the reader: Some tribes are called by different names now.

There is also a list of little known tribe names in the back of the book.

A better history than many that claim to be comprehensive. While there is no way to truly be comprehensive in one book, this one does a good job. It also mentions any lesser known tribes by name. How many millions of others will never be known by name?

Low vision readers: The print is a bit small for reading. Will take longer to read.
