Grade 3-5-These brief books sympathetically present the history and community life practices of three Native American tribes. While the material is not new, the texts are simple enough for younger and lower-level readers. Effective full-color illustrations of tribal practices and crafts and a few photos are included. Iroquois and Nez Perce include a myth, but the storytellers or sources are not credited. Nez Perce includes Chief Joseph's moving speech. All of the texts, however, are somewhat repetitive, some terms are not adequately explained, and the glossaries are in very small type. Sentences often begin with conjunctions and adverbs, a questionable grammatical example for readers this young. Still, these are adequate introductions to the multiplicity of Native peoples.
