Description:
"This book traces the struggle of Americans trying to understand the people who originally occupied the continent they now claimed as their own. The question of the Indian, Steven Conn argues, compelled Americans to define new fields of study, such as archeology, ethnology, and linguistics. Even more important, the presence of Native American culture forced Americans to confront the meaning of history itself; how it should be studied, what drove its processes, and where it might ultimately lead. The encounter with Native Americans, Conn argues, changed the very way Americans conceived of their own history" -- Publisher's description.
