Definitely History. Definitely Not Captivating

The narrator is the highlight. At times it’s like listening to someone read the KjV version of the Old Testament

Deserves, five stars.

Overall, a very good summary of the conquest of the Americas by Europeans and their attitude towards natives there.
Some souls might not like to hear the horrid truth due to the deep-rooted biases and whitewashing of the history by the conquistadores.

Excellent and interesting series.

If you actually care about authentic history and don't want to hide your head in the sand because the truth offends you, then you will enjoy this audible.

I'm glad this is still available

This is an informative look at the line of native Americans from the earliest communications on the Atlantic coast to their being driven off their lands by Europeans across the state to the West coast.
This may be a progressive view as one reviewer suggests but its what appeared.

Well written and balanced!

Well created but a lack of details. These histories were composed as short therapeutic overviews but if you are looking to inquire about the actual moments in this war, you will have to look further.

\Exemplary Historical

Those looking for a summary will appreciate this. It covers a tragic and entirely overlooked series of campaigns against tribal insurgencies.

Decent quick review.

One of the two most poignant circumstances of American history. How will we eternally come to terms with these actions?
True evil lies serving for the desire to expose it.

Factual Book Will Provide Rudimentary Knowledge

Following accounts of American Indian wars is an incoherent combination of stories without any solid analysis of the underlying dynamics at work; this audible is one of the few I have seen that provides a fine analysis in a concise and interesting way.

A rolling boil to follow.

This is a concise narrative of the fight between Europeans and their descendants and native Americans. It is honest and generally accurate.

A top primer on the topic.

This is a useful overview describing the fate of the indigenous peoples of the current United States at the hands of the invading Northern Europeans.
