Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title in the "Native Nations of North America" series uses many colorful drawings and paintings, attractively interspersed with a fairly brief but informative text, to introduce young readers to the traditional culture and history of the Native American groups that called the Great Plains home. Fifteen brief chapters present information about the languages, families, food, hunting, dress and dwellings of the Cree, Blackfeet, Sioux, Crow, Pawnee, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Osage, Kiowa, Comanche, Metis, Mandan, Hidatsa, Assiniboine, Wichita and Plains Apache. Their conflicts and encounters with Euro-American settlers and soldiers are also discussed. The book does a good job of illustrating both the variety and similarities among these many native cultures. Its attractive layout helps make it appealing and appropriate for a wide age range of readers. A map, index and glossary are included. 2001, Crabtree, $22.60 and $7.95. Ages 7 to 14.
