Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Each chapter begins with a question relating to the Subarctic Peoples, who were the first peoples to live in North America. Detailed answers explore their culture, customs, ways of life, interactions with other settlers, and their lives today. Color and black-and-white illustrations are found throughout the book. A map shows some of the routes early peoples took as they spread across North America. Another map defines their culture areas. These areas show where people shared the same language and customs. Bolded words throughout the text are defined in the glossary. A timeline, beginning about 10,000 BCE, depicts historical events. The timeline ends in 2007 when the First Nations people organized a demonstration called the Aboriginal Day of Action to bring attention to poverty, lack of health care, and other native issues. The section, "Find Out More" lists books, websites, DVDs, places to visit, and suggestions for further research about the Subarctic peoples. The index provides easy navigation through the text. The book is part of the "First Nations of North America Series" which includes a book about Arctic Peoples and eight about other specific Indian Peoples. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
