Booklist Review

Gr. 4-6. These two entries in the First Book series about Indian tribes are well written (though somewhat different in scope) and allow readers to experience a tribe's history from the Indian point of view. Chippewa, covering all the important topics--religion, lifestyle, food, and clothing, etc.--is the more formulaic of the two, but it does a good job of mixing color photographs of modern-day Indian life with historical photos and engravings. Pawnee covers the same material but is a little more sharply written, with an emphasis on the whites' dealings with all the tribes in the area. For instance, since the Sioux and Comanche were able to acquire guns and horses decades earlier than the Pawnee (because the Pawnee lived the furthest away), the Pawnee were easily slaughtered by their neighbors; and when the Pawnee ranks were depleted, they were more successfully bullied by the government. Very useful choices; check the Series Roundup, this issue, for books on the Zunis and Pueblos. ~--Ilene Cooper
