The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King (55/52)

By looking at the history of North America through Native eyes, King provides a litany of reasons why he and his brethren are a little more than pissed off. This book is chock-full of stories that aren’t told in history class and is a great place to get a lay of the land for the ignorant like me. King not only rails against the history, but does attempt some levity. Although offering no real suggestions for reconciliation, the book does catalogue the injustices. Interesting read.
