I rarely promote other books on this site since I generally promote my own book. I have a few from time to time because of their unique connection with my home state of Kentucky. But in today's post I want to make an exception. A book entitled the "Indian Givers" is the work of anthropologist Jack Weatherford.
Weatherford describes the transformation of the world as a result of the Natives of the Americas. Amazingly, some of the things, devices and ideas that we take for granted everyday had roots in practices and items acquired from the early Americans.
"Indian Givers" is still available in paper back at Amazon.com and a modest price I was amazed to discover. Of course my book is also available at Amazon.com here.

Two articles in the works now are "The State's Rock" and "Mysterious Swift Creek." I am not sure which will be first out but one should be along in the near future. In the meantime enjoy the blog and check out the archives. Also, follow me on Twitter or friend me on Facebook.
