Interesting information and great narrator
I was looking for a book on Native American religions and unfortunately due to the dirth of material available on audible on this subject the choices are limited. The good aspect of this is that this book covers a huge amount of information over a vast amount of time and area. This means that you dont get to learn alot of details about any specific tribe or regions but get a quick run down on the main points and differences of each region. The material presented is very interesting and done very well. Overall this book is great if you want to learn about a large amount of tribes and how they came to be in the Americas. This is a greater starter book for background information.

This is too broad a topic to be put into such a small time frame.
Consequently, it ends up being a string of loosely connected factoids, some of which are presented in a rather paternalistic light. These are people with beliefs that should be respected and not viewed as museum pieces. My opinion.
