Description
Much as we'd like to think that cannibalism is associated only with far-flung corners of the globe and the prehistoric past, this unsavory practice has a long history in North America, suggests George Franklin Feldman in this engrossing, anecdotal history. From the Natchez tribe's gruesome child sacrifices to the Kwakiutl's belief in a cannibal spirit that can possess them, and from the Nootka—who attempted to sell human limbs to Captain Cook's crew—to Apaches boiling their captives' brains, the stories recounted here rely heavily on vivid and sometimes harrowing firsthand accounts. Taking an objective view, Feldman also details the equally bloodthirsty attacks and reprisals perpetrated by European explorers and colonists.
