The great Indian wars ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
"From the Spanish conquistadors of the 16th century to the English colonists of the 18th, the settling of America often came at the cost of Native American blood. But the 350-year conflict between European settlers and Indian natives reached its apex with the territorial expansions of the 19th century, when the notion of Manifest Destiny justified a series of battles and massacres that virtually wiped out the indigenous population. This five-part documentary series chronicles the Indian Wars of 1540 to 1890 through archival photographs and voiceover narration, covering pivotal battles such as Tippecanoe, Horseshoe Bend, Little Big Horn, and Wounded Knee, as well as the famous men who fought them, including Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, Geronimo, Sitting Bull, Wild Bill Hickok, Kit Carson, and George Custer"--Video Universe site.

When the water tap runs dry ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
"The greatest impacts from climate change will not be warmer temperatures but water shortages. Learn how America's water infrastructure is incapable of handling these changes. There exist solutions that will make us rethink everything from how we use water, to where we live, to who owns water. Every drop of water that flows through America's rivers or is stored in our lakes and reservoirs is spoken for. Now, America is over-drafting its water supply. How did it come to this? The answers lie in America's outdated water infrastructure, an inflexible water storage system, greater demand from an increasing population and the impacts of global warming. In When the Water Tap Runs Dry, we will look at these issues and provide essential solutions based on a new vision of America's water infrastructure, and customized water rights agreements. If the water crisis is not addressed, the water tap will run dry for many Americans."--Container.
