By Colin F. Taylor. 128 pgs. Surveys weapons made and used by American Indians north of present-day Mexico from prehistoric times to the late nineteenth century. Over thousands of years, weapons were developed and creatively matched to their environment. They were highly functional, often decorative and carried proudly in tribal gatherings and in war. Color photographs and illustrations.
A fine introduction to American Indian weapons that is highly readable, well constructed, and superbly illustrated.óDouglas D. Scott, coauthor of Finding Sand Creek.
