The Indian Question (Objective Computing, CD-ROM for PC/ Windows, $59.95) Sure, it’s just a stack of dusty old documents, but if you’re into the history of the American West or Native American culture, this disc is a living blast from the past. Compiling rare texts, maps, and illustrations, Indian Question lets you troll through Chief Black Hawk’s autobiography, every treaty from 1778 to 1883, and all 4,000 pages of Henry Rowe Schoolcraft’s 1850 Archives of Aboriginal Knowledge. For amateur and pro historians, this is the happy hunting grounds of primary sources. A- -Ty Burr
