Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
All too often we forget that long before Columbus or any other European arrived on the North American continent, there were hundreds of tribes of native Americans who lived here. These peoples had a fascinating tradition of storytelling. The authors have taken this tradition a step further and put these stories together in a book for all of us to share. The stories are wonderfully and simply told and have been collected from all over the country. Following each story, the reader will encounter a Topic section and an Activity section. The topic section includes a discussion suggestion and questions about the story that has just been told. The activity section varies greatly from story to story. Each activity has been put together with a great deal of thought and care, integrating the project with current school curricular activities. This is a wonderful tool for teachers who want to remind our children of our cultural heritage and our need to care for our environment. 1997, Fulcrum,
