In a fascinating new look at the Indians of North and South America, "Indian Givers" proves these people were instrumental in shaping world culture--from the monetary system to our diets to political organizations and our beliefs. ...An utterly compelling story of how the cultural, social, and political practices of Native Americans transformed the way life is lived throughout the world, with a new introduction by the author

"As entertaining as it is thoughtful . . . Few contemporary writers have Weatherford's talent for making the deep sweep of history seem vital and immediate."--The Washington Post

After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Native Americans has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Native Americans to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.
