From the back cover:
"A Young Readers' Edition of the First History of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous Peoples
Historian Robin D.G. Kelley called it "the most important US history book you will read in your lifetime," and former Navajo Nation president Peterson Zah declared it "an indispensable text for students of all ages."
Upon publication, An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States shattered our understanding of the United States as a land "discovered" in the "New World". This young readers' edition continues that re-education by accessibly challenging the Doctrine of Discovery, Manifest Destiny, and the myth of the US as a "nation of immigrants." Here, readers will learn about the ongoing Indigenous genocide often omitted from textbooks, the role colonialism played in forming the US, and the many ways Native Americans have actively resisted US imperialism for centuries.
Fully adapted, the text includes discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading, and other materials to encourage young people and readers of all ages to think critically about their own place in history. Spanning more than four hundred years, An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young People radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative."
