Myth of the Ecological Indian

Myth of the Ecological Indian. The American Bison Society disappeared in the mid-1920s, but it had accomplished its mission, largely without government interference. Yellowstone aside, the private sector had saved the buffalo. Faulk, Professor Emeritus of History at Northeastern University, has written numerous books, among them, North America Divided: The War With Mexico, Tombstone: Myth and Reality, and Land of Many Frontiers: A History of the American Southwest. Библиографические данные. Country of Publication.

Faulk is saying that mythologizing American history both demeans those who actually made it and cheats those who today would be guided by it. A worthy message in this year of planning for the upcoming Bicentennial.

I was really enjoying this book until about the 6th chapter or so. That's when the author went all Frank Waters on the reader. The Earps were evil, and caused all the problems in Tombstone, if you believe him.

Except for that one chapter, though, the rest of the book was great!

It was interesting for one of the older books on Tombstone. It's author is known for his other works on the west and are worth a read if you can get a hold of them.

Extremely interesting.

Kind of an outdated book. I'm no History prof (as is the author) but I did notice some inaccurate descriptions, i.e., The Bisbee Massacre was not ";thugs shooting into a store of Christmas shoppers" What the reality is: While a robbery in progress, the gang "look-out" stood in front of a store/bank sending random shots out in the dark street to stop any potential foils. Next we have The Wyatt Earp/John Behan chapter. A lame attempt at debunking myth. I don't know---maybe this authors academic cronies like that sort of thing. Besides those two items it is an interesting,lively account of life in an Arizona mining town .I doubt the research though. No point to the book, just added more myth (negative myth making on Earp's) and less reality. Try "The Last Gunfight" instead.
