Gr 6–8—This set examines the diverse aspects of Native American life with a focus on business and industry, life on reservations, heritage preservation, and relations with the U.S. government. The densely worded pages are difficult to mine due to the omission of headings. However, the authors do a solid job of avoiding generalizations, opting instead to illuminate the themes according to the perspectives of a variety of tribes. For instance, in Heritage, vignettes from the lives of members of the Saponi, Abenaki, and Comanche tribes add interest as well as a sense of how greatly the cultures vary. Photographs of uneven quality and reproductions illustrate each title.
