Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-In simple but clear narratives, these books describe the history and culture of an American Indian people from long ago to the present. Both are lavishly illustrated, with captioned photographs and reproductions on every page. Topics include religion, society, homes, artwork, history, and contemporary lifestyles. Boldface type highlights words included in the brief glossary, although the texts themselves amply clarify the words in question. A few interesting but little-known tidbits are listed under the heading "Did You Know?" There is also a section called "Want to Know More?" that suggests books, Web sites, and organizations to contact or visit. Of the two titles, The Pueblo is the stronger. The illustrations are a perfect accompaniment to the text and the captions expand on the information presented in the narrative. The Iroquois is less successful in this respect. The pictures and their captions seem more like non sequiturs than elaborations. Both books, however, offer good information in an engaging and readable manner.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
