Format: Hardcover
This is an important and prize-winning book that deserves wide distribution, including college course adoptions in several disciplines. But the price of the book guarantees failure. A major trade publisher should buy the paperback rights and release a reasonably priced paperback ASAP.

As a history student, I read this book largely to supplement a course lectured by one of Dr. Jacob's own former students, but I found myself unable to put it down after opening it.

I think this book is definitely a must-read for any Native Studies historians, or any history student esp. in the Midwest and Western U.S. and in Australia.

Jacobs covers very well the topics of indigenous child removal, including the affects it had on children and families and the consequences of removal policies. She also clearly explains every facet of white maternalism which offers invaluable contextual information. Neither praising nor vilifying those involved in child removal, Jacobs' writing style allows readers to formulate their own views and responses to child removal policies.

Dr. Jacobs mentions many case studies she performed and her time spent researching is very well reflected in this book.

The book ends with a very powerful epilogue and afterword.

Absolutely wonderful! This history is not caught up in one side says this and the other says that. It shares the stories of women and the children who were raised by them. Some had great stories, others were horrific. They were honest and non-apologetic. Jacobs writes in a "Here is what happened!" manner.

The book came in great condition. I did not have to wait so long and the book was needed for a last minute assignment so it worked out perfectly! I will order future books from this company!
