An enormous amount of research has gone into this beautiful book, and the story it tells is heartbreaking. It is, along with the horrendous things that were done in Australia to the aboriginal population, and in South America to the native population, etc., etc.,... yet another tragic story of the destruction of a culture and the wholesale abuse and slaughter of thousands of people - by white Europeans. All in the name of overwhelming greed, a very mistaken sense of cultural and spiritual superiority - and plain bloody-mindedness - that, sadly, is still very eveident today. An excellent read - highly recommended.
