Overlanders Handbook

The Overlanders' Handbook is written in the same entertaining yet clear jargon-free English for which Chris Scott's other books are known - it doesn't assume you know your plug gap from a radiator cap.

"Everything you know about Indians is wrong." As the provocative title of Paul Chaat Smith's 2009 book proclaims, everyone knows about Native Americans, but most of what they know is the fruit of stereotypes and vague images. The real people, real communities, and real events of indigenous America continue to elude most people. The Oxford Handbook of American Indian History confronts this erroneous view by presenting an accurate and comprehensive history of the indigenous peoples who lived-and live-in the territory that became the United States. Thirty-two leading experts, both Native and non-Native, describe the historical developments of the past 500 years in American Indian history, focusing on significant moments of upheaval and change, histories of indigenous occupation, and overviews of Indian community life. The first section of the book charts Indian history from before 1492 to European invasions and settlement, analyzing US expansion and its consequences for Indian survival up to the twenty-first century. A second group of essays consists of regional and tribal histories. The final section illuminates distinctive themes of Indian life, including gender, sexuality and family, spirituality, art, intellectual history, education, public welfare, legal issues, and urban experiences. A much-needed and eye-opening account of American Indians, this Handbook unveils the real history often hidden behind wrong assumptions, offering stimulating ideas and resources for new generations to pursue research on this topic.

In the first book to focus on relations between Indians and emigrants on the overland trails, Michael L. Tate shows that such encounters were far more often characterized by cooperation than by conflict. Having combed hundreds of unpublished sources and Indian oral traditions, Tate finds Indians and Anglo-Americans continuously trading goods and news with each other, and Indians providing various forms of assistance to overlanders. Tate admits that both sides normally followed their own best interests and ethical standards, which sometimes created distrust. But many acts of kindness by emigrants and by Indians can be attributed to simple human compassion. Not until the mid-1850s did Plains tribes begin to see their independence and cultural traditions threatened by the flood of white travelers. As buffalo herds dwindled and more Indians died from diseases brought by emigrants, violent clashes between wagon trains and Indians became more frequent, and the first Anglo-Indian wars erupted on the plains. Yet, even in the 1860s, Tate finds, friendly encounters were still the rule. Despite thousands of mutually beneficial exchanges between whites and Indians between 1840 and 1870, the image of Plains Indians as the overland pioneers’ worst enemies prevailed in American popular culture. In explaining the persistence of that stereotype, Tate seeks to dispel one of the West’s oldest cultural misunderstandings.

Overlanders is a fascinating, meticulously researched account of a western odyssey for gold, a great adventure story that was a pivotal experience in the history and development of Canada. In the late 1850s and early 1860s thousands of people from around the globe were rushing to the rivers and creeks of British Columbia in response to one of the greatest gold discoveries in the world's history. In eastern Canada and the northern United States groups of men and a few women chose not to follow the normal sea routes but to go overland on unexplored and undeveloped trails. They formed a variety of disparate groups, large and small, fit, experienced, weak, young, old, children, leaders and followers. Their route, initially chosen to save money, resulted in the opening of the northern continent's vast interior. Richard Thomas Wright tells the epic talc of the cross-Canada treks for gold. 1858-1862, following an unexplored overland route across North America to the goldfields of British Columbia. This is the updated story of that amazing adventure, with a new chapter and new photos.
