Shelves: american-history A very fine treatment of Native American contributions in the realms of agriculture and pharmacology, and of abuse of native cultures. The other material is rather uneven, and in the case of politics and economy is a reach: reminds me of the old Soviet schtick about the Russians having invented everything. The footnotes are sparing and the bibliography is awfully thin, suggesting that Weatherford may be a little more imaginative than scholarship would demand.

Indian Givers: How the Indians of the Americas Transformed the World
Book summary[ edit ] Jack Weatherford explains how the peoples of the Americas have been forgotten for their contributions to the modern world. He also explains how the Europeans learned how to deal with excess. From there, he moves on to the industrial revolution. Saying that without the contributions of Americans both North and South , many of the things we take for granted would never have happened. Secondly, he talks about food, in terms of the way the diet of Europeans changed with corn , beans, potatoes , tomatoes , and peppers; in terms of how the food is grown, produced, and preserved; and in terms of the culinary arts.
