School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Excellent sources for both current and historical information about each nation. All three titles include captioned photos, reproductions, and illustrations, most of which are in color. Numerous sidebars and highlighted information can be found throughout the texts, such as Thomas Jefferson's policy regarding Native nations, the effects of European diseases, and how museums "collected" their Native artifacts in Cherokee. Three mistakes appear in Comanche-Wallace Coffey's name is misspelled in the text, Frederic Remington's name is misspelled in a caption, and Texas gained independence from Mexico in 1836, not 1835. In spite of these errors, each book is full of information for reports.-S K Joiner, Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
