School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Each of these books is colorfully illustrated with maps, paintings, contemporary photography, and time lines. All three volumes include an explanation of the name of the tribe as well as its known history, daily life (past and present), and customs. They also discuss how large the tribes' homelands were before the arrival of Europeans, and the population changes across the past three or four centuries. Readers will find the chapters about each tribe's courting and funeral customs particularly fascinating. These fine titles will no doubt serve many students in completing social studies assignments, but they could also be read for the pure enjoyment of the information provided and for their colorful and vibrant portraits of these people.-Jerry D.
