Long Description

In the beginning, North America was Indian country. But only in the beginning. After the opening act of the great national drama, Native Americans yielded to the westward rush of European settlers.

Or so the story usually goes. Yet, for three centuries after Columbus, Native people controlled most of eastern North America and profoundly shaped its destiny. In Facing East from Indian Country, Daniel K. Richter keeps Native people center-stage throughout the story of the origins of the United States.

Viewed from Indian country, the sixteenth century was an era in which Native people discovered Europeans and struggled to make sense of a new world. Well into the seventeenth century, the most profound challenges to Indian life came less from the arrival of a relative handful of European colonists than from the biological, economic, and environmental forces the newcomers unleashed. Drawing upon their own traditions, Indian communities reinvented themselves and carved out a place in a world dominated by transatlantic European empires. In 1776, however, when some of Britain's colonists rebelled against that imperial world, they overturned the system that had made Euro-American and Native coexistence possible. Eastern North America only ceased to be an Indian country because the revolutionaries denied the continent's first peoples a place in the nation they were creating.

In rediscovering early America as Indian country, Richter employs the historian's craft to challenge cherished assumptions about times and places we thought we knew well, revealing Native American experiences at the core of the nation's birth and identity.

With version 3.2 comes a new way to handle product images. This should give you more control over the images you display.

Prior to version 3.2, you simply had to check for the existance of the product>image property. If it existed and was not blank, you could safely display the image. 

Starting with version 3.2, you may want to check one more field before you display the product image. Many API users wanted access to the pending images. The only reasonable way to do this was to add a new property named product>hasImage which can be one of four values.

If you are displaying the product images to your users and you DO NOT want to display pending images that have not been checked, you should only display the image if product>hasImage=Yes. If you want to show production and pending images, you can simply check the product>image property if you like. We suggest using product>hasImage as your main check and only display the image if it meets your needs. Here are samples of the JSON structure.

The property product>hasImage will always be regurned even if you specified a list of properties in the "get" string that does not include the image property. The main reason for this is that it is possible to calculate the image path on your side thereby saving the bandwidth of returning the image path.

If you want to calculate the path to the image on your end instead of requesting it from us, you can do this in two ways. 

  1. If product>hasImage=Pending then simply use the path{13_digit_EAN}.jpg
  2. If product>hasImage=Yes then it gets a little more tricky. We split the images into subfolders because there are so many of them. To calculate the path start with the 13 digit EAN and split it up like this:{1st_3_digits}/{2nd_3_digits}/{3rd_3_digits}/{13_digit_EAN}.jpg

This should make interacting with product and pending images much easier for you. Look at the example JSON shown above for working exmples of image paths.
