Grade 5-9-These impressive volumes present an accurate look at the social and cultural existence of Native peoples from their early history to present-day life. Bial has done extensive research, including visiting locations to learn firsthand about tribal cultures and traditions. The books cover the basic material that is presented in standard works. They include history, cultural beliefs, and "lifeways": dress, handicrafts, food, and games. Recipes are also provided. The style is lively and clear. The texts are beautifully accented with full-color and black-and-white photographs, period illustrations, and maps. These are books that will not only provide readers with needed information, but will also inspire them to inquire further about these people.
