School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-An overview of the history of this Native American tribe, their traditions, and culture from prehistoric times to today. In her descriptive narrative, Remington discusses the tribe's possible origin in the east, its migration to the Plains, and its interactions and conflicts with the white population including the Battle of Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee. Forced assimilation and confinement to reservations are also covered. A final chapter looks at the Sioux since 1920, recent tribal organizations, and reservation conditions. While the book covers a great deal of ground, it provides sufficient information on each topic to give readers a clear understanding of the subject. Sidebars provide interesting supplementary material. Sources are documented throughout and included in the four-page annotated bibliography. The volume is illustrated with black-and-white reproductions and photographs, both archival and modern, and maps. This book would be a good choice for research or for edification. Even libraries with several titles on the subject will want to add it.-Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
