Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
While there are many different Native American tribes, experts have grouped them into different culture areas. The Indians in each culture area had similar beliefs and traditions. The "First Nations of North America" series examines each culture area. The Northwest Coast Indians lived along a 2,000 mile coastline strip. Their way of life revolved around the ocean. Many lived off food from the sea. Unique traditions, daily living, and spiritual beliefs are discussed with simplicity and accuracy. The writing is clear, easy to follow and full of interesting information. The formatting makes the pages easy to look at and information easy to find. Accompanying pictures and photographs complement the material and bring history to life. The social implications of white settlers coming among the Indians are discussed with objectivity and respect. Well written, easy to read, and extremely informative. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr
