The Invasion of America

Indians, Colonialism, and the Cant of Conquest

Francis Jennings

The Invasion of America fills a void in historical studies of American Indians. Mr. Jennings demonstrates that the story of the tribes east of the Alleghanies has been as filled with myths and is equally as dramatic and tragic as that of the better-known horse Indians of the Western Plains. He has done so in a richly documented narrative that will surprise many readers with its revelations of the colonial period of America’s past.
