I find it so hard to write book reviews on works intended to be synthesis. Especially one’s that span large geographic areas and timespans. I have so many questions about details and intricacies that necessarily go unexplored, and it’s hard to balance that concern with the intentions of the book.


I live and work on lands represented by Native Nations whose sovereignty, governance, and treaty lands existed long before the state of Nebraska and Virginia. These Nations include the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, Umoⁿhoⁿ, and Manahoac Nations.
