School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-These titles cover the history of each tribe as well as present-day circumstances and culture. Both include black-and-white and color photos and reproductions. In general, those in Comanche are of better quality and higher interest. Each volume includes a simple map and a recipe. These titles would satisfy the demands of students writing short reports. More thorough studies with better illustrations include Raymond Bial's The Comanche (Benchmark, 1999), Sally Lodge's The Comanche (Rourke, 1992), Willard H. Rollings's The Comanche (Chelsea, 1989), Martin Schwabacher's The Chumash Indians (Chelsea, 1995), and Robert O. Gibson's The Chumash (Chelsea, 1991). Purchase these new titles where additional material on these tribes is needed.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR (c) Copyright 2010.
