Library Find of the Day

One of the best parts of being a librarian is suddenly stumbling upon books in your collection that you didn't realize were even there- little treasures, if you will. Today's find: Almost White: A Provocative Study of America's Mixed-Blood Minorities, published c.1963. Ostensibly a look at Native Americans and the displacement of their lands, but also a veritable cornucopia of information on why Native Americans are not, in fact, white. Who knew?

I guess it's better than the copy of Some People Are Indians I found over the summer- an account as to why Indians are no longer the brutal savages they once were.

Sounds like a cool book. I love reading books like that from that era.
