Grade 4-7. An attractive layout and a fluid text introduce readers to six Native American cultures of the Southwest. A brief introduction examines the first human inhabitants of the area, who were believed to have crossed a land bridge from Asia. Desert Dwellers explores the many ways in which each culture has changed and survived. Over the years each group has borrowed from other Indians, been influenced by Europeans, and adapted to life in modern America. Warren profiles the Pueblo people, the Hopi, the Tohono O'odham and the Pima, the Pai, the Navajo, and the Apache, highlighting traditional and contemporary life styles, economies, arts, festivals, and recreational activities. Vivid photographs and a highly readable text make this a good read for anyone interested in modern Indians, while the well-organized factual information will be appreciated by report writers.?Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
