Reviewed with Allison Lassieur's The Choctaw Nation.
Gr. 2-5. Two new titles in the Native Peoples series focus on the Choctaw and the Shoshone. The Choctaw were the first tribe forced to leave their homeland in the southeastern U.S and move to Oklahoma. Today the Choctaw are divided into several groups throughout the U.S. The Shoshone lived in small bands in western North America, and a young Shoshone woman, Sacagawea served as guide and interpreter for the Lewis and Clark expedition. Today most Shoshone live on reservations in the western U.S. Each volume focuses on various aspects of tribal life, such as history, clothing, government, and daily life, with clear and concise text and colorful photos showing contemporary members of the tribe. Covering both history and present-day activities, this is a good series to introduce young readers to specific American Indian tribes. A hands-on activity, a glossary, a reading list, addresses, and Internet sites are appended. Karen Hutt
