Their story is a blend of adventure and pain. And in order to understand American history better, it is important to consider the Native American perspective. That's why we came up with a top 10 list of the best ones for you! Topping our list is Charles C. Mann's 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, which gives you a new perspective on American history.
