Dr. Roger Carpenter, associate professor of history at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, recently published "American Indian History Day by Day: A Reference Guide to Events."
ABC-CLIO—a 55-year-old publishing company that partners with leading scholars and educators to create curriculum and reference materials—approached Carpenter and asked him to write the book, which he began in 2009.
"My inspiration for writing the reference book lies in the fact that there are many things within American Indian history that are unknown, and many of the events are important and significant to all of American history," Carpenter said.
