I've had my copy of this wonderful insight into Native American history and culture for about 10 years. My brother's a history buff so I decided to give a copy to him for Christmas. The book arrived on time and in perfect condition. Thank you.

Very informative and gives the true voice of the people, not the usual sanitised, white version of events. Very moving.

From the Heart: voices of the American Indian 26 Jun. 2000
By M. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A compassionate, inspiring book about the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Set against the backdrop of the European/American/Indian wars, we are able to hear the stunningly eloquent and heroic words of Indian people themselves who fought with tremendous courage for a lifestyle worth keeping. This is an inspiring book - if these leaders can have such strength in the face of such numbing sadness, certainly we can take a lesson from this and better face our much smaller problems of today. Also surprising and never seen before are the number of Indian nations whose speeches are included in the book - from the Assateague to the Tolowa - many, many nations are heard.

A Must-Read 13 July 2000
By Leslie Fiscella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An inspiring, colorful, and well-written account of the history of Indian people. Ms. Miller has a unique and riveting way of presenting the material, in story form, through the vast testimonies of people who actually experienced it. We are given glimpses of a way of life and a relationship with the earth that are scare among modern people. I highly recommend this book.

WONDERFILLED REFERENCE SOURCE 5 July 2000
By JANE B. LEGO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
OBVIOUSLY THIS WORK IS FROM A PRO--PROFESSINAL EDITOR WHOSE WORK COLLECTS, ORGANIZES AND COMMENTS ON SPEECHES AND DOCUMENTS THAT WE, AS A NATION, TEND TO FORGET OR IGNORE. WHEN WILL MS. MILLER DO ANOTHER BOOK? SOON, I HOPE!

An experience of native American emotions. 19 Feb. 2002
By Mr S.Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
To study the history of the demise of the native Americans at the hands of the white settlers, is to hurt, to hate, to mourn and to wonder. This book, if nothing else, brings those feelings into sharper focus, makes them raw and gives us an insight into the sheer desolation and sense of hopelessness experienced by those Indian victims of so long ago.
Though slightly repetitive in it's format and content, it still managed to hold my attention by the solemnity and the wisdom of those true heroes of the wild west.
My advice would be, to read such books as, "Bury my heart at wounded knee" by Dee Brown, to gain a reasonably comprehensive knowledge of the process of America's "ethnic cleansing" policy, prior to reading this book. Following this, you'll be suitably depressed enough to tackle this necessary literary insight into the native American psyche.
