This annotated bibliography of more than 200 recommended reference books has been compiled to assist public librarians, school library media specialists, and teachers in providing high-quality, relevant nonfiction materials on American Indians. Each entry has complete bibliographic data and indicates subject area and reading level. Annotations are lengthy and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each book and its potential use in the curriculum. In addition, an entire section is devoted to criteria for selecting books about American Indians that avoid stereotypes and ensure objectivity, and an easy-to-use checklist for evaluating materials is included.
