Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5--Little Man is a 10-year-old Native American who "travels the powwow trail" with his family. They attend these gatherings in the eastern states on weekends from April to October, selling crafts, socializing, and participating in the dancing. By centering this volume on an actual child at a Wampanoag powwow, Greene is able to relate many details and describe the event in a personal way. The attractively organized book is filled with full-color photographs. Fact boxes are interspersed throughout to highlight various subjects, from jingle dresses to powwow manners. A useful glossary is appended, along with online sources. While this title is more informative than Terry Behrens's Powwow (Children's, 1983), it contains much the same information found in George Ancona's Powwow (Harcourt, 1993) and Robert Crum's Eagle Drum (S & S, 1994). The notable difference is that Crum and Ancona discuss powwows held in Montana, and Greene focuses on one in Massachusetts. While all of the gatherings are similar, interesting regional differences are described. Any one of these three titles would be a good selection; together, they provide an intriguing range of personal perspectives.--Darcy Schild, Schwegler Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
