Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-Like Foxfire of old, Levinson's book is a compilation of the societal histories and living customs of over 100 tribal peoples of the world. The text is divided into six main chapters: dwellings; basic skills and materials; crafts; foods (including hunting weapons and methods of preservation); recreation; and culture, language, and customs. Provocative information includes the details of head shrinking, witchcraft, and sorcery, and physical standards of beauty. The book contains clear black-and-white illustrations. YAs who need specific details on the building of an igloo, the proper operation of a boomerang, instructions for a cat's cradle, or those who are simply curious will enjoy browsing through this treasure trove of information on the basics of life for nonindustrial peoples all over the world. A must for collections that don't have the first edition.-Carol Beall, Immanuel Christian School, Springfield, VA
