A travesty of scholarship. And that's being kind. Its focus on health issues ensures a one sided bias. Revisionism? Maybe. Implications of genocide are at minimum, far-fetched. Though is does emphasize differenceds between the interactions of natives in South America, USA and Here in Canada. We come out, not matter what, as far and ahead more decent, moral. But, anyone reading this loses the vibrancy, inventivesness, the spirit, to complexity and the toughness of the Canadiennes. Anyone really interested in truth:
"Adventurers in the New World" by george Hebert Germain; and "The Metis in the Canadian West' by Marcel Giraud (translated by George Woodcock). These are French Canadian works; something a format the author of this swork neglected to resesarch.
