Book Notes 253
Association has recently received two books which indicate that
interest in this perennial favorite is not noticeably abating in the
mid-twentieth century. Published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, A.
Hyatt Verrill's The Real Americans is a popularly treated, pano-
ramic view of the American aborigines which does not pretend to
be a scientific ethnological study. A History of the United States
Indian Factory System, r795-r822, by Ora Brooks Peake, on the
other hand, is a factual, well-documented work designed pri-
marily for the specialized student rather than the general reader.
Published by Sage Books of Denver, Colorado, Dr. Peake's book
is an exhaustive investigation of what the writer describes as the
first attempt of the United States government to enter business in
competition with private business.
