Essays are well-written at the high school level and try to appraise difficult issues from both points of view (American Indian vs. government). . . .If this set does not duplicate what you already have, high school libraries will want to own it as a valuable addition to the history of the American Indian. Excellent appendices, such as a list of all the tribes by region, maps, an index and bibliography, all add to its usefulness.
