Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- These entries don't add anything new to the existing material about these three major Native American civilizations. Each is a chronological account of the beginnings, rise, and fall of the culture, and all have a final chapter that summarizes either the lasting accomplishments and/or the current conditions of the descendants. Little mention is made of the Incas' contributions, but much attention is paid to the dismal state of most native Peruvians and Bolivians. In both Aztecs and Incas , the authors point out some of the reasons the Spanish conquests were relatively quick and wrought such long-term devastating effects. One good map at the beginning of each book and numerous small full-color photographs and illustrations are worthwhile additions, as are the lists for further reading. --David N. Pauli, Missoula Public Library, MT
