The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King: I am not certain why I didn’t pick up this book sooner. While not a complete history, or likely a 100% accurate account, this read provided what I would call a good survey of the relationship and conflicts which Native people in North America have with us colonizers and settlers. While the writing style took a little to get use to—it is very informal and personable, it fit well with the narrative the author was trying to tell. With that said, I could do without the author’s constant inclusion of comments about his wife and all of the ways in which she pointed out how wrong he was from time to time.
