Grade 4-6-Two serviceable but undistinguished titles. Adequate, basic information on the tribes is provided, making them generally suitable for report writing. However, Nez Perces meanders chronologically in its opening chapter, going from 1877 to 1875 to 7,500 B.C., causing possible confusion. The greatest drawback in the presentations is their paucity of illustrative matter. Nez Perces contains a total of only 18 black-and-white and full-color photographs and reproductions (including maps), and only 1 photograph of the people today. Ojibwas fares slightly better. These titles bridge a reading-level gap between the lower-grade "New True" series (Childrens) and the "Indians of North America" series (Chelsea), but they fail to rise above standard series fare.
