Booklist Review

Gr. 7^-10. This volume in the Indigenous Peoples of North America series examines the history and culture of the Indians of the Great Lakes region of North America, generally comprising the Six Nations of the Iroquois in the eastern section and the Algonquian tribes in the western. Although the Algonquian tribes had a common language and culture, tribes in the Iroqouis League united for governance and keeping the peace. Detailed descriptions of housing, hunting practices, religion, child-rearing, and armed conflicts illustrate the differences as well as the similarities between the tribes. Small black-and-white illustrations, mostly drawings, depict housing styles, villages, and hunting scenes, as well as leaders such as Black Hawk and Joseph Brant. Despite the book's limited coverage of contemporary life, students will find a wealth of information for reports and research. Source notes, recommended readings and Web sites, and works cited are appended. --Karen Hutt
