Trade, Transportation, and Warfare examines the contributions American Indians have made to these areas, with an emphasis on geography, economics, and social studies. The main question that the book answers is how Indians of the Americas were connected with others inside and outside their culture group. Fascinating coverage of technology focuses on how American Indians used that technology—such as boat building and road making—to connect with others.
