An Indigenous Peoples' Histroy of the United States  This book is a full-bore attack on what author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz perceives as the glaring gaps in the U.S. history about the continent's native peoples.  She describes the U.S. as "a colonialist settler state, one that, like the colonialist European states, curshed and subjugated the original civilizations in the territories it now rules."  The conventinal national narritive, she writes, is a myth that's "wrong or deficient, not in its facts, dates, or details, but rather in its essence."  Copies of the book will be available for loan at the library in September.
