Children's LiteraturePart of "The American Indian Nations" series, this volume introduces the history and culture of the Comanche, originally of the southern plains, and now of Oklahoma. Enhanced with many attractive color and black and white photos and drawings, five brief chapters discuss: Comanche origins, traditional life-ways, change and culture clash, the Comanche today, and sharing traditions. Inserts present a recipe, brief biographies of modern and historical Comanche leaders, and other related information. The author succeeds in affirming the Comanche 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.
