500 Nations book
I picked up a copy of this from a charity (thrift) shop today. Two pounds. Published in 1994. An Illustrated History of North American Indians.
I remember back in the 90s I used to frequent the library at the American Museum Bath and they had a copy of this. Used to photocopy bits to take home.A book that grew from an eight-hour TV series, this is the epic and unforgettable story of the history, lore, legends, and legacy of North American Indians. With a highly accredited author and over 485 paintings, woodcuts, drawings, and photographs--329 in four-color--this oversized volume addresses a subject of never-ending fascination, providing detailed information about the lives, culture, and heritage of hundreds of North America's Indian nations. Never before has this subject been so thoroughly and deeply explored from the perspective of the Native American viewpoint.

"Battle of Monongahela, by Manuel Krommenacker. By the end of this year, you will be able to recreate this battle using my miniatures. There will be units of French, Canadian, French allied tribes (Ottawa, Ojibwa and Huron), British and Colonial. Plus, some trees, rocks formations, wagons and artillery. And then lastly some character figures."here

In search of history - Captives documentary
Documentary on the fate of captives
As white settlers pushed west, resulting wars with Native Americans claimed more victims than the dead. Portraits of captives taken by both sides include: "White Indian" John Tanner who returned to his roots after 30 years of "civilization", and a woman rescued during a forced exchange who escaped to return to her Native-American husband.
