"Going beyond the story of America as a country "discovered" by a few brave men in the "New World," Indigenous human rights advocate Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz reveals the roles that settler colonialism and policies of American Indian genocide played in forming our national identity. The original academic text is fully adapted by renowned curriculum experts Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza, for middle-grade and young adult readers to include discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading, and other materials to encourage students, teachers, and general readers to think critically about their own place in history"--

From Library Staff

Challenging the dominant narrative that the United States was discovered by white Europeans, this history centers the Indigenous people that have called this land home for thousands of years.

This book is most likely my favorite book I've ever read partly because I am passionate about indigenous peoples and enjoy history. It's a relatively quick read and I look forward to reading the original to see how it compares.
