About the Author

Eminent historian William Brandon (1914-2002) was a writer for seventy years. His fiction, poetry, and essays appeared in periodicals ranging from Black Mask to Paris Review. Brandon's books on the American West and American Indians range from The American Heritage Book of Indians to an anthology of American Indian poetry.


One of the more well-rounded history books on the North American Indians. The book is objective and pays great attention to detail. Colorado Springs Gazette The Rise and Fall of North American Indians: From Prehistory Through Geronimo provides a scholarly account tracing the history of Native Americans from their Stone Age roots through their rise and fall to today's world. It's a sweeping and impassioned survey that tells the stories of all kinds of tribes, their encounters with white people, and the evolution of Indian-White relations that would become the blueprint for the eventual near-extinction of not just tribes, but an entire culture. Tribes chronicled here range from Mayans and Olmecs to Cree and Apache and beyond, and offers a definitive survey of the extent of tribal relationships and struggles in North America. Any collection looking for such an in-depth survey will find this reference a 'must have' addition. Midwest Book Review An eloquent and exhaustive chronicle of the history of North America's peoples. -- Brian John Murphy American History
