Abstract:

"The Earth Shall Weep is a book with a pioneering approach that sets it apart from any history now on the market. Drawing not only on historical sources but also on ethnography, archaeology, Indian oral tradition, and his own extensive research in Native American communities, James Wilson sets out to make the Indian perspective on the past and the present accessible to a broad audience. He charts the collision course between indigenous cultures and European invaders, from the first English settlements on the Atlantic coast to the Wounded Knee massacre of 1890, explaining how Europeans justified a process that reduced the Native American population from an estimated seven to ten million to less than 250,000 in just four centuries. Wilson shows how old ideas about native people have continued to underpin government policy and popular perception in the twentieth century, leaving a painful legacy of ignorance and misunderstanding."--BOOK JACKET.
