“This book is not only a work of history| it makes history…. We desperately need to hear this story if we are to save the earth| the sky| the water| the air — save ourselves…. I thank Donald Grinde and Bruce Johansen for their eloquent and powerful contribution to our education”. (Howard Zinn)
“A dense| hard-hitting well-documented work … Ecocide of Native America offers a much needed option to European perspectives of history…. It is a valuable alternative textbook| if you can hold with its difficult truths”. (New Mexican)
The book includes the moving testimony of those who continue to experience the slow death of their lands| their means of subsistence| their communities| even as environmentalists look to Native American ecological precedents for solutions to our common global catastrophe.
