For half a millennium now the Indians have not ceased to amaze us. Daniel Royot, Professor of American Civilization, the author of more than thirty works studying the past of the West and the ethnic culture of the USA, has been stepping beyond the myths and the spectacular images of the Indians persisting in the mass consciousness, to describe the entire diversity of peoples inhabiting America before the advent of white men. Presented have been builders of mounds, hunters of bull from the Great Plains and of alligators in Florida, fishermen from the coast of the Pacific, trappers from the Great Lakes, nomads from the deserts....A host of tribes, each one of which carrying knowledge, accumulated for centuries. After the French, Spaniards and Englishmen colonized North America, the local population opposed the irresistible migration from the Old Continent during the 19th century and kept on the values of their forefathers, despite the drastic plummeting of their numbers. Calmly and methodically, the French historian outlines and interprets the road of a civilization of deep and old roots, withstanding all trials and tribulations, created and kept up by proud and tough people of indestructible feeling of truthfulness to tradition and predecessors.
