Hi Celticrose,
I went to the bookstore this weekend and got Bury my Heart... I agree it is very good so far, and no gorey details wink.gif Do you know anything about the author, Dee Brown?
Thanks,
Anne

Hi Anne! good for you! I think you will really like the book a lot. It is one of the few accurate historical books on the Native Americans you will find. So many try to romantize everything or try to make everything so over the top in the gory part.

no, sadly, I don't know anything about the author, Dee Brown. If you find out anything let me know. smile.gif

Yes, One thing I really like is that she/he has quoted lots of original documentation of what happened from the indians' viewpoints.

Okay, I know I am coming in a little late, but I am just dying to tell you all about these history books written in the 1800's. They are all about English history except one or two set in Ancient civilizations but they are all completely gripping and historically accurate. The author is G.A. Henty. You can go to this site to find them. They are rather expensive, but they are beautiful copies.

http://visionforum.com/search/productlist....px?search=henty

They are the coolest books ever and all ages can read them. I have friends who are twenty, eight, forty-two and sixteen who all love them and borrow back and forth.

It is good to see so many interested in the history of North American Native people. They are a forgotten people in our popular culture. I think if we were to look closely, there are a lot of similarities between early celtic culture and the culture of pre-contact Natives.


O'siyo MacAibhistin,
~Indeed it is always fantastic to see people broaden their minds with knowledge of various cultures~ biggrin.gif I have learned a great deal while here on CelticRadio about the culture of the Celts, Irish and Scottish..tis why I enjoy sharing my culture so much wink.gif
~Forgotten people? dry.gif nah, we just decided to sit back and watch blink.gif A O'ginalli of mine from Edinburgh, Scotland has told me on more than one occassion that his culture and my culture are very similiar~ tongue.gif I tend to agree!~

I have a large Civil War library and am allways adding to it, but I do love biography of any of our early presidents. Have you read Fawn Brodies' "Thomas Jefferson"? It is an intimate look at one our countries most able statesman. Anything by Bruce Catton on the civil war is Very Good. His last book, "waiting for the morning train " is excellent and talks a great deal of my home state of Michigan. I LOVE history and have been enjoying everyones posts on the celtic tribes and their origins. Thanks to all for the most interesting FREE reading on the net!!!

I have SHELVES of books on the Northern Plains people (The Blackfoot, Gros Ventre, Assiniboine, Sarsi, Lakota etc) If you let me know what you are interested in I can recomend some good ACCURATE reading. I also highly recomend a magazine called Whispering Wind! It comes out every 2 months and has craft, culture and customs articles. Much of it is Southern Plains ( Kiowa, Comanche, Cheyenne etc) but it DOES have stuff from ALL the cultural areas. Check it out at;

Hey Dogshirt! You bring back much memories to me. I never did subscribe to the Whispering Wind magazine, but I always made an attempt to look it over every month through one of my Native American friends when I was on the powwow circuit. It really is a great and must read for anyone interested in the Native American culture and current events. thumbs_up.gif Thanks for reminding me!

I have tons of books on the southwestern natives. I don't pretend to be an expert in any field, but that is one area of Native American anthropology and society I have tried to study.

Now I am working on Revolutionary, French & Indian and Jacobite 45 period of study. I think I need more bookshelves! unsure.gif

Simeag;

I love all History but at the top of the list is Ancient Greek History, followed by the History of the Great War (WWI) especially the Canadian involvement. If I may say in my opinion the Yanks didn't win that war neither did the Brits. Its was the Canadians and the Anzacs. Kicked the Germans butt we did.
