Editorial Reviews

This slender book is packed with information about how to play authentic Native American games, including instructions on making some of the necessary equipment and related stories. The authors also describe the history and skill development underlying the games, offering readers a well-rounded understanding and context for the information. The games are relatively simple and could easily be worked into a curriculum along with the stories. As might be expected, the authors document their sources, and the bibliography provides a few more resources for those who wish to delve further. Akweks' b/w illustrations are peppered throughout the book and are not only decorative but useful where illustrating equipment or the game itself. This is an invaluable resource for any school or public library, and multiple copies are recommended. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2000, Fulcrum, 88p, illus, bibliog, index, 23cm, 00-0100016, $12.95. Ages 13 to 15. Reviewer: Donna L. Scanlon; Children's Libn., Lancaster Area Lib., Lancaster, PA, March 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 2)
