About this title

Synopsis:

The Plains Indians built their houses with the only materials they had: the skins of the buffalo they hunted or the soil dug from the earth around them. Homes grew larger and more varied with the arrival of the horse. The earthlodge, dating from AD 700, was larger than the tipi of buffalo hide. Both were laid out according to religious beliefs and symbols, as were arbors, burial platforms, sweatlodges, and the impressive structure for the Sun Dance.

From the Back Cover:

The Native Dwellings Series:

“Shemie has succeeded once again in creating an authoritative and intriguing non-fiction book that explores the lives of people through the homes they have built...The result is a rich and aesthetic reading experience for young readers.”
