In this revised edition of the anthropological classic, Clark Wissler traces the history and culture of the American Indian from prehistoric times to the twentieth century. Dr. Wissler carefully documents the arrival of the Indians' Asian ancestors in North America over then thousand years ago and the Indians' subsequent settling of the continent. Giving a broad survey of the tribes and cultures of all the great Indian language families, the author portrays the Indians' struggle to resist the advancing frontier of the white man, re-creates the Indians' original modes of life and their modifications through contact with a new civilization, and concludes with a thoughtful assessment of the Indian's role in twentieth century America. 383 pages includes index.
