The issue with the best books on American history is terrific. As reference librarian at a college in Montreal, Canada, I have found it a very useful collection-assessment tool for looking at our American history books. Many thanks. But I do think it unfortunate that there is not a section on American Indians. There are a few books on Indians in the entry on the West, though not too many. It seems to me that this omission reflects the way in which the historical profession has abandoned native people to the anthropologists.
