Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- A basic introduction to the Plains Indian peoples. After a one-page description of one theory of the origins of Native Americans, Thomson discusses the buffalo hunt and the many ways the animals were utilized. Readers are told how a tipi is made, and are then given instructions for making a paper model. Other craft activities include moccasins, beadwork, and paper feathers. Curiously, after stating that ``an eagle-feather war bonnet was only worn by a tribe's finest warrior,'' the author then procedes to give instructions for making a war bonnet out of cardboard and paper, complete with a photograph of a young girl wearing this and ``war paint.'' Picture writing, clothing, and sign language are also covered. The book concludes with a half dozen random questions and adequate answers and a list of resources that includes museums to visit and an uneven list of books to read. The index is irrelevant and unhelpful as it includes terms and references to arbitrary words in the text. Arthur C. Parker's The Indian How Book (Dover, 1975) is much clearer and more thorough. --Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA
