Children's LiteratureA large quantity of information on the different traditions, history, culture, food, social structures, clothing, and current issues of the Yanomami people are explained in clear and easy text. The format is well-organized and user friendly. For example, the author has highlighted the difficult and cultural words within the text and included them in a glossary at the back of the book so readers can learn their meaning. Each page has large full-color photographs to help the reader visualize the text. The book also has a map of South America, with the Amazon Basin marked, so that readers will understand where the Yanomami live. The book, part of the "Indigenous Peoples" series, also has a time line, "fascinating facts," further reading, web sites, and an index which will help with research reports. This is a good source for school reports or for students interested in the Yanomami people. 2004, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 8 to 12.
