Children's Literature - Children's Literature
One of "The Native Americans" series, this book deals with the tribes of the Northeast Woodlands region of the U.S. which stretches from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi valley and from southern Canada to Kentucky. The introduction offers three main sources for information about this culture: archaeological records, oral tradition and written records of early European explorers. The region's land, climate, vegetation and animals are described. How the people used the resources, languages, early life during the last Ice Age, earthworks, grave goods, farming, ceremonies and community life are identified in text that reads well. The maps, photos and drawings are very good; the book's layout is excellent. Sidebars provide further information on such varied topics as medicinal plants, lacrosse and wampum. This is an excellent book to use when presenting one of Joseph Bruchac's stories. It provides a variety of information in an attractive package. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 6 to 12, $23.93.
