With many of the popular pseudo-historians silent and conspiracy theorists focused on COVID-19, there is not a whole lot to talk about relevant to this blog today. I thought I would instead share a rave review of my Mound Builder Myth by Jack Mason that ran in the Midwest Book Review this month. The review excerpt is reprinted by permission of MBR.
An inherently fascinating read from cover to cover, The Mound Builder Myth: Fake History and the Hunt for a "Lost White Race" is a unique and seminal work of meticulous scholarship that is further enhanced for academia with the inclusion of a twelve page Bibliography, six pages of Notes, and an eleven page Index. While especially and wholeheartedly recommended for community and academic library American History and Native American History collections, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that The Mound Builder Myth: Fake History and the Hunt for a "Lost White Race" is also readily available in a digital book format (eTextbook, $22.51).
