Obviously inspired by respect and admiration for North American Indians, Peter Farb delineates the various ways in which cultures can answer the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of humans. It seems as though every aspect of human development is represented in this detailed overview.

  • I first read this book in 1969. It struck me then as one of the best books I'd read, a thought that stayed with me all this time. On a whim I bought the book again recently and I am devouring it. For those who are interested in society and how it evolved, this book is a "can't miss"! It's filled with fascinating information and is written in a style that is compelling. After 40 years I can still say it's a favorite.

  • I read this for a class in 1974 and the book is just as meaningful and insightful then as now. A well written book. A must read for anyone interested in especially native American culture. Easy read,

  • Before reading this book, I had little knowledge about the Indians on this continent. This book is well written and very interesting. He goes into detail about their living situations, relationships within each group and with other groups, their governing, families, work ethics, etc. It should be required reading for history majors.

  • WOW i love this man and his thoughts. adds a perspective to native americans that I don't think anyone has ever experienced without reading this.

  • A "must" read for anyone interested in anthropology, cultures, or simply to learn.

  • A very interesting theory of man's rise to civilization as shown through the various Indian tribes in North America. I read this fifteen years ago and it has stayed with me.

  • the true account of what America was at the time of contact, ie, enslavement by the 'christian' invaders: a extraordinarily civil society that tended and managed a fertile, vibrant, astoundingly biodiverse continent with sophistication, ethics and skill that western civilization in its present condition will never be able to match, not in a thousand years....

  • This is a fascinating study of the original Native American cultures that existed at the time of the earliest European encounters.
