A must read for anyone interested in American Indian History. It allows the lay person to understand complicated demographic issues that shaped the American Indian population in this country. Reading this will alter your perception of the world.

This important issue of Native American genocide is covered thoughly in this book. Another book on the subject, "The Smallpox Genocide of the Odawa Tribe at L'Arbre Croche, 1763: The History of a Native American Tribe," has just been released.

I'm having a discussion with someone online who probably read a blog based on this book. (I won't credit him with actually reading the book, and we must thank those with ownership for providing us a preview.)

This seems like carefully researched history, and it's impressive that the author has read sources that are over 100 years old.

However, it's absurd to apply the word "holocaust" to what happened to American Indians. Even the pages I read at random confirmed what I already knew from my American history degree: Most of the Indians died on account of the natural spread of disease from the Europeans. The quote I read said 2/3rds in a north east area. And it must be remembered that many other deaths were due to legitimate wars. The Indians chose sides in the fighting between the English and the French, and unsurprisingly, many died. They were combatants.
