Thundersticks: Firearms and the Violent Transformation of Native America

Thundersticks: Firearms and the Violent Transformation of Native America by David Silverman

David Silverman has published the new book Thundersticks: Firearms and the Violent Transformation of Native America with Belknap Press (Harvard University Press). The book "reframes our understanding of Indians’ historical relationship with guns, arguing against the notion that they prized these weapons more for the pyrotechnic terror guns inspired than for their efficiency as tools of war."
