Grade 3-5-- For the Wampanoag Indians (the descendants of those who greeted the Pilgrims at Plymouth in 1620) in Mashpee, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, the clambake is more than just a many-splendored outdoor dinner; it is a traditional ceremony of their people. Twelve-year-old Steven Peters, grandson of the author, learns from Peters the history and traditions of their people, including the creation of a special clambake. The physical preparation for this occasion, honoring an elder in the tribe, is described clearly enough for readers to try it, but also conveyed is the underlying respect for nature and one another. There are helpful maps, a glossary and pronunciation guide, and a good list of books for further reading. The full-color photographs illustrate the clearly written text and portray real people who are part of the contemporary world, passing on old traditions to their children. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
