I read this for my North American Indians Anthropology Class. I enjoyed this book a lot. It is a very interesting document about Native American Boarding School experiences across many Indian cultures from about 1879-1950. The essays are pretty comprehensive and there are even some comparisons to other cultural bordering schools in their own environments, such as those of the Cherokees, Choctaws, Scottish, English, and Australians. Its also interesting to think that the idea for boarding schools came from one man's interpretation of another's idea. (Richard H. Pratt, Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon). Its a great introduction to Indian boarding schools as long as you remember that this book looks at the positives of the schools. You must not forget about the negatives, which are overwhelming. Anyway, its a valuable source of information with lots of interesting stories.

I am so pleased with the book I received. What I am looking for is more information about the Indian boarding school, Chilocco. Keep me in mind if another book comes out about Native Americans schooling. Thank you.
