Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4The history of the six tribes of Native Americans known collectively as Apache is summarized in this attractive book that includes information on the work and dress of men, women, and children; government; ceremonies; raiding and war; the effects of white explorers and settlers; reservations; and life today. Sneve's text is not exhaustive, but it does provide some detailed information. Himler's atmospheric oil paintings expand on the words to give readers a fuller appreciation of the subject. Attributed quotations from Apache people are sprinkled throughout the book. Sneve also acknowledges the assistance of several Native American experts and museums. The "New True" series (Children's Press) on Native American tribes is easier to read; for slightly older children, this book is a better choice.Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
