And while I stood there
I saw more than I can tell,
and I understood more than I saw;
for I was seeing in a sacred manner
the shapes of things in the spirit,
and the shape of all shapes as they must
live together like one being.


(Black Elk)

'The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America'
​By James Wilson (Author)

Purchase Book:

Amazon.com
Amazon.co.uk


Description:

As far as history books are concerned, Native Americans have been secondary to an essentially Euro-American story. Now James Wilson has produced a rigorously authoritative, beautifully written, comprehensive history that - as Richard Gott wrote in the London Literary Review - "places the 'Native Americans' at the center of the historical stage, abandoning the traditional version of the American past in which the 'Indians' had a subservient role on the periphery of someone else's epic. Drawing not only on historical sources but also on ethnography, archaeology, Indian oral tradition, and his own extensive research in Native American communities, James Wilson sets out to make the Indian perspective on the past and the present accessible to a broad audience.
