Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The daily life of the Northwest Indians during the 1700s was well organized and geared toward survival. Each family member had a job to do. Men and boys fished and hunted and women and girls gathered berries and other foods for meals. For items that they did not have, they relied on trade. Much of their clothing was made from cedar bark and animal skins. To pass on their traditions they told stories of their beginnings since they had no written language. They also shared their history through their carved totem poles. During a recent visit to the northwest I saw some of their totem poles. Many of them have the thunderbird on the top which relates to the stories they told of the thunderbird who reigned on tops of high mountains. They believed that the thunderbird could stir up a storm by just flapping its wings. This title is part of the "Bridgestone Books Native American Life" series. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 9.

Gr 2-4-These titles all follow the same basic outline. For the most part, they relate a pre-European contact existence, although there is mention of brief meetings or trade with the Spanish explorers in Northwest. Each book looks at the people, social life, home life, economy, and keeping traditions. On each chapter spread, a page of text faces a full-page, full-color illustration or reproduction. The sentence structure is geared toward a third-grade reading level, but older students in need of a basic overview might appreciate these books. For more in-depth coverage, try Raymond Bial's "Lifeways" series (Benchmark).-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
