Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this broad overview, kids preparing a first report about Native Americans in the Southwest will get a view of life before contact with the Europeans. The information about the Pueblo peoples is condensed down into a few pages. New tribes such as the Zumi, Hopi, Navajo and Apache are introduced. The land, foods, dress, farming styles and the way they were organized are all stressed. Although the book tells about pre-European contact many of the illustrations are post-contact. They show horses, sheep, donkeys, and so forth. The glossary defines the bolded words in the text and there is a short index. The books in this series should do well for first reports in the early elementary grades, although there is quite a bit of repetition, especially between this title and Life in a Pueblo. 2003, Crabtree Publishing, Ages 7 to 10.
