More and More Westerners Experiencing Homelessness in Thailand
Sort order. Oct 15, Adam rated it liked it. Early on in the book, there's a lot of good information about the early days of North America. The pictures in this book have very little to find with the information on the page. There is a lot of information about the American Indians and how we decimated them and their lands. The author seems to play devil's advocate and shows a side of the United States that isn't pleasant. The end just dies off with Teddy Roosevelt. No final words or summary.

Well worth a read for anyone interested in the American frontier and the characters that shaped the history of the West. This book spends more time on the people of the frontier than it does on the history and that makes it more readable and informative than most texts out there, I reckon anyway.
That said this is among the saddest things I have ever read. The expolitation of the America s and it's peoples is really heart breaking stuff.
The Westerners by Dee Brown
Add to that that the exploiters where such a bunch of gre Well worth a read for anyone interested in the American frontier and the characters that shaped the history of the West. Add to that that the exploiters where such a bunch of greedy, ignornant and abusive scumbags, they were devoid of compassion, understanding or sympathy for the new land or it's people.
I know, values change and they were just acting out the "norms" of their day and I can't shouldn't impose the values of our time on them etc. But, alas, I will anyway. That the Native Americans lost everything is one thing, sadly the reality of war and conquest among our speices is that the conquered get smashed and possibly exterminated in the process of empire building, there is nothing new or unique in that. It has been the modus operandi of nearly all conquering cultures, always was and probably always will be. My main grief stems from the fact that the new Americans had so little respect for the Nature of their new country, it just boggles the mind at the short sightedness of it all.

They seemed to see the natural world as nothing more than an open source of wealth to be exploited for their own personal benefit trappers, miners, ranchers, clergy etc. And as for the companies It would seem that America has always had it's greatest trouble, in regards to the treatment of people and landscapes, from their big companies. This book give a clear history of their beginings.
