From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up Known to themselves as Neshnabek, or the People, the tribe commonly known as Potawatomi lived near the waterways of the Great Lakes area. They were actively involved in the conflicts between the French and English colonial powers, in the American Revolution, and the War of 1812. Today the Potawatomi, who live in scattered locations from Oklahoma and Kansas to Ontario, take an active part in protests to assert Indian rights and continue the struggle to control their own lives. Clifton melds the Neshnabek creation story to the archaeological record, successfully combining Indian and non-Indian views of the past. His sensitivity to the People's traditions is evident as he traces their movements through American history. Numerous black - and-white drawings, photographs , and maps enhance the presentation. High-quality color plates display the artistic decoration applied to clothing and other tribal objects. Borders highlight short segments of special topics. An excellent sample from a promising series about many lesser-known tribes. Karen P. Zimmerman, I. D. Weeks Library, University of South Dakota, Vermillion
