The Rediscovery of America

Ned Blackhawk

“The Rediscovery of America” offers a sweeping yet fine-grained history of Indigenous peoples on the lands and waters that now make up the United States. With an astonishing array of detail drawn from years of research and an estimable depth and breadth of understanding, Ned Blackhawk demonstrates the critical importance of Native history not only to U.S. history, but also, and urgently, to Native Americans themselves. A rare and ambitious work that interprets a vast number of societies over five centuries to argue for a reorientation of the larger national narrative, this book invites readers into valuable conversations about the stakes of encounter across cultural difference.
