"An early text that inspired the start of the anti-civilization movement...Writing from a Native American perspective, Forbes maintains a steady and humble tone throughout the text...It is the kind of history one doesn't need to read twice to absorb it... I think it's crucial that people read books like this.Razorcake
"Cannibals is a work of philosophy and ideas
A welcome addition to the library of a new generation of scholars and activists who are seeking a philosophical framework for their work in indigenous studies."American Indian Quarterly

It so desperately needs to be told that Columbus was a slaver and murderer and discovered NOTHING! He INVADED lands and "took" according to his greed.
