Latest Reading

The Wild Frontier, Atrocities During The American-Indian War from Jamestown Colony to Wounded Knee, by William M. Osborn, Random House, 2000. A very readable and probably the most well balanced book I have read about the conquest of the continent by people of European descent. It really gives a fair assessment of the cannibalism, butchering, lies, and murder committed by both sides in this long war. Any American History enthusiast should read this book. Very thorough bibliography.
