While there is definitely an anti-european sentiment throughout the book, there is little glorification of the "noble savage." An eye-opening description of different groups from the most primitive (root-grubbing), to large, complex groups. The author also explains the migration of early peoples, along with climate-change in a cohesive presentation. You really feel that you understand what North America was like 9,000 years ago, and how that helped shape Amerindian history (of course, it also makes one question the future.)
It's an education in a paperback, superior in scope and more fact-based than most college classes. Thank you Amazon for making it possible for people to learn of these books and acquire them.
