Summary
From the Publisher: This riveting volume dispels the sanitized history surrounding Native American practices toward their enemies that preceded the European exploration and colonization of North America. The research is impeccable, the writing sparkling, and the evidence incontrovertible: headhunting, cannibalism and human sacrifice were practiced by many of the native peoples of North America
