What You Need to Read, September 2020

Interlibrary loan services have just restarted at my college’s library after this long Covid season. Classes are resuming, some in person, some in a hybrid format, and some entirely online. Here is your quarterly bibliography of what seemed notable to me in the field of Native American history. And, oh, by the way, I have signed a contract for the third edition of Native America which will be co-written with my friend and former student Peter Olsen-Harbich of William and Mary. It should be out by the end of 2022. Enjoy the reading!
