Today, some two million American Indians inhabit the United States, less than one percent of the nation's population. Their origins have always been viewed from a 500-year-old perspective—from the point of view of the Europeans who “discovered” the New World. Yet the true story of the American Indians begins some seventeen thousand years ago—and it is past due for a telling that shows Indians as they are, rather than as westerners wish them to be.

Recent archaeological findings, newly discovered written accounts, and never-before-published records have contributed to a whole new understanding of our country's oldest ancestors. Drawing upon the latest research, as well as his own personal experience living among the Hopi tribes, acclaimed author and formerNatural Historymagazine editor Jake Page covers all aspects of Indian life throughout the ages. From the Pleistocene era to Custer's Last Stand, the Trail of Tears to the Indian Civil Rights Act, the establishment of reservations to the negotiation of casino property,In the Hands of the Great Spiritreveals the astonishing endurance of a group of people whose experience is as varied as the world is old.Santa Fe New MexicanA history survey and narrative with no equal,In the Hands of the Great Spiritis a work that belongs on the shelves of anyone who aims to gain a deeper understanding of the history, suffering, and triumphs of this land's original inhabitants.Phoenix New TimesPage brings scholarly detail as well as literary flair to this epic account.Publishers Weekly(starred review) A magnum opus...fills an enormous gap in the popular historical literature.The Washington PostJudicious, as well as flowing, lucid, and satisfying....Great praise goes to Page for joining so many others in getting out the story of Indian nations.
