Is there a good, reliable, affordable book that discusses American Indian tribes in the context of their cultures and 17th through 19th Century migrations?

Pat,
I just picked up IN THE HANDS OF THE GREAT SPIRIT by Jake Page at the County Library. I an just starting the the book, so I can't tell exactly where he plans to go with this book.
For all I know Page may just be another white guy who believes he "knows indians". There have been plenty of them around going back to the earliest times of "discovery".

Pat,
I finished the book I mentioned above. I guess you could sort out the migrations and their timing, BUT one needs to wade thru a lot of PC rhetoric to find it.
