Our Shameful Past

This is not the history of the American West that we learned in school. It is an indictment of our Christian forefathers that took what was not theirs. It documents the of breaking nearly every Christian concept to gain more land to satisfy their Doctrine of Manifest Destiny. From 1865 to 1890, Dee Brown describes how each of the major western tribes were deceitfully and cruelly dealt with as America expanded westward. Thirty pages of photographs are included that portray many of the Indian leaders of this period. This is an important source of information for anyone interested in American history.
