The Sioux: Nomadic Buffalo Huntersby Rachel A. Koestler-Grack
Discusses the Sioux Indians, focusing on their tradition of hunting bison. Includes a recipe for pemmican and instructions for making a paper buffalo robe.
Children's LiteratureDuring the 1800s, the Sioux Indians traveled frequently in search of buffalo herds. As the buffalo roamed in search of more food, the Sioux moved in search of the buffalo. As a result, their land eventually came to stretch from the Mississippi River in Minnesota all the way to northeastern Wyoming. Life for the Sioux consisted largely of hunting buffalo, and that is the primary focus of this instructive book. Actual photographs, combined with numerous artist renditions, support the easy but informative text. The book also contains several activities such as directions for a Sioux relay race and a simple recipe for peanut butter pemmican. Young readers will enjoy reading this appealing and educational book. Additionally, it would expertly supplement any young student's study of Native Americans. The book concludes with a glossary, index, and list of sources for additional information. It is part of the "America's First Peoples" series. 2003, Blue Earth Books/Capstone Press,
