Booklist Review

The continuing emphasis on multicultural awareness has resulted in a plethora of reference publications dealing with the indigenous peoples of America. Like the one-volume Scholastic Encyclopedia of the North American Indian [RBB D 15 96], this new set from Grolier is aimed at a young audience. Alphabetically arranged articles cover topics that range from specific tribes, individuals, places, and topics (e.g., Apache, Sacajawea, Tenochtitlan, Totem pole) to broad subjects such as education and art. Traditional activities such as dance, hunting, and weaving are addressed, as are controversial issues, including water rights and gambling. Coverage extends from the Arctic to Central America. The slim volumes are each about 60 pages long and feature attractive covers, slightly enlarged print, and short articles (one to four pages) set off by subheadings. The double-column text is accompanied by numerous photographs and full-color illustrations, maps, and sidebars. Tribal "Fact Files" identify basic demographic highlights (current population, precontact population, first European contact, etc.). See also references appear in highlighted insets. In addition, each volume includes the same "A^-Z of Native American Tribes," a listing of 90 major tribes that provides quick comparative data on languages, locales, housing, neighbors, lifestyles, food, and crafts. Each volume also features an identical "Further Reading" list (primarily adult titles) and a detailed index covering the entire set. This resource will be accessible to upper-elementary-school students for independent research. Its emphasis on visuals will appeal to younger students. Article titles mirror typical school assignments (Games, Manifest Destiny, Railroads, Trade, etc.). The inclusion of the tribal fact compilation in each volume will facilitate introductory classroom or library media center group work. Although some of this information is covered in basic encyclopedias, Native Americans is an efficient and accessible reference set. The vivid illustrations and detailed captions strengthen its appeal. This set is recommended for elementary-and middle-school collections and should be considered by high-school and public libraries as well.


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Clearly written entries on tribal groups from the Arctic to Central America, individuals, and aspects of Native life are included in this alphabetically arranged set. Many of the articles on the individual tribes include short "Fact Files" that provide information on housing, language, first European contact, and more. These articles also include information on family and social life, rituals, and religion. Separate entries on such topics as "Water Rights" and "Education" offer background on these issues and keep the set contemporary. However, students will need to utilize other works for particulars about tribal government, population statistics, in-depth current issues, and illustrations of the housing and clothing of individual groups. High-quality, full-color and black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and a number of maps appear throughout the set. An appendix listing the basic facts about each tribe and a complete index conclude each volume. An engaging, accessible resource that will fill a gap in most collections.-Mary B.
