Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A look at the many facets of Pueblo life . . . Filled with illustrations and diagrams that expand and clarify . . . Superb nonfiction and a boon to report writers." School Library Journal, Starred
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7 Another outstanding book on Native Americans by the authors of The Tipi (Knopf, 1983). After giving a brief introduction to the Pueblo people and their pre-Columbian background, the Yues describe how Pueblo villages were built, how they grew, how an architecture evolved that suited the terrain, the climate and the religious and the survival needs of the people. Furnishings, family life, gardens and fields and ceremonial structuresthe Kiva and, later, churchesare also described. A final chapter deals with the present-day life of the Pueblo people. Many black-and-white illustrations and diagrams of varying sizes extend and illuminate the text. Throughout, the relationship of the people to the land, and their reverence for it, is evident. While all of this information is available elsewhere (Erdoes' The Rain Dance People Knopf, 1976; o.p., LaFarge's A Pictorial History of the American Indian Crown, 1974; o.p.), no one book draws it all together so well for this age group. In addition to suggestions for further reading, there is an extensive bibliography of research sources. Li Stark, North Castle Public Library, Armonk, N.Y.
