Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
Great Basin Indians is one of a ten book series about first nations of North America. All the books in the series provide information about where the first peoples came from and how they survived and thrived in the area they chose to settle. Each book provides details about the environment so readers can gain an appreciation for how the members of the First Nations had to live. The Great Basin includes a large land area that covers present-day Nevada, Utah, along with western Colorado and Wyoming, southern Idaho, southeastern Oregon, and slivers of California, Arizona, and New Mexico. All the early peoples of North America first began arriving in the Great Basin about 10,000 years ago. There were five major American Indian nations in the Great Basin. The Indian nations are the Ute, Paiute, Bannock, Shoshone, and Washoe. The daily life of these first peoples is included, their beliefs, their interactions with each other, and their customs and celebrations. Readers will learn how they interacted with white settlers and the United States government and what they are doing today. The book is informative, well organized, includes a timeline, an index and a bibliography. Each book in the series is excellent and an outstanding resource about the people of the First Nations.
