From Booklist:

The Passport to the Past series looks at ancient cultures including Egypt, India, and Rome. This title has a slightly more difficult task as it is a roundup of Native Americans, a term encompassing many different cultures and traditions. The crowded format is organized by topics such as hunting, ornament and decoration, warriors and warfare, food and farming, sacred dances, and death and dying. Several paragraphs of text give an overview, while captions under numerous photographs and historical engravings explain a bit about how various tribes engaged in the illustrated activities. The bottom third of some two-page spreads are devoted to various crafts, including ankle bells and headdresses. These crafts seem difficult, and the space might have been better devoted to further examples of tribes. Although this is a scattershot presentation, there are some very interesting tidbits here for those willing to find them. Grades 4-7. --Ilene Cooper
