School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These books are nearly identical in format and type of content. In a simple but clear and highly informative narrative, each one describes the history and culture of a Native American people, from long ago until today. Both are lavishly illustrated with captioned, full-color photographs and reproductions on every page. Topics include religion, society, homes, artwork, and contemporary lifestyles. Each book uses boldface type to highlight the words included in the brief glossary, but the texts amply clarify the word in question. A few interesting but little-known tidbits are listed under the heading "Did You Know?" Unfortunately, the Web sites suggested are not appropriate for the intended readership. Nevertheless, the books do offer solid, useful information in an engaging and readable manner and are worthy of consideration by libraries seeking additional materials on Native American peoples.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
