Book summary

In the year of 1492, when Christopher Columbus first set foot on the soil of "THE NEW WORLD", there were an approximated, though unconfirmed, six million Native Indians, of differing tribal cultures, and systems, spread all across what is now America, and Canada. By the years end of 1890, when the rifle and cannon had fallen silent, and the sabres safely sheathed, and the bow, lance, and tomahawk were finally thrown to the ground in defeat.That figure had been reduced to a mere, staggering, two hundred and fifty thousand souls.
