Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of "The American Indian Nations" series, this volume introduces the history and culture of the Cheyenne of Montana and Oklahoma. Attractive color and black-and-white photos and drawings enhance the book. The five brief chapters cover Cheyenne origins, traditional life-ways, change and culture clash, the Cheyenne today, and sharing traditions. Inserts present a recipe, brief biographies of modem and historical Cheyenne leaders, and other related information. The author succeeds in affirming the Cheyenne as a vital, enduring people of today, while presenting their history and traditional culture. This book is shorter and easier to read than some books from similar anthropological series, and might be especially useful for that reason. A map, index, timeline, glossary, bibliography, internet site list, and places to visit list are included. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
