contributes materially to dismantling such dominant historical stereotypes. Clifton holds a firm hand on his twin themes of cultural continuity and change. The Potawatomi are as ever; they seem altogether transformed. The Potawatomi emerge from his pages as persistent and embattled people whose social style continues to defy the sentimental thinness of Ameri­ can pluralism. For the Prairie Potawatomi, "the great melting pot was a place to cook fried bread, not to lose one's identity in" (p. xv).

As a member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, I learned tons that i did not know about my tribe from this book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

I bought this book used, it was in great shape and good price,.
If you are or know anyone that is a Pottawatomie Indians this is a great reference book and a fun read.

The three hundred years of Potawatomi life covered in this work involved a long time in the field interviewing many members of the tribe, especially the elders, as well as long hours in library research.
As a result we get a good perspective of that life from the Indian point of view along with a white perspective filtered by many perspectives, from missionary to government official.
Most importantly, we get Clifton's perspective as he reconstructs events often shrouded in bias and bigotry. Knowing little about the Potawatomi, I hesitate to judge how effective his work is about particular events, but I am sure he gives us the best overall view of three centuries of Potawatomi life that we can hope for.
A solid achievement in ethnohistory.

Apparently not all of this book is factual, which is too bad as I have family on the Prairie Band and Citizen Band reservations.
