About this title

Synopsis:

Describes the history, culture, social structure, everyday life, language, customs, and beliefs of the Nez Perce, and looks at the struggles they face to adapt to the modern world while keeping their traditions alive.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9-In these attractive books, the history, culture, and social traditions of the subjects are described in clear, respectful language. Both titles begin with a folk story describing the origin of the people, followed by a description of the geographic and historical context in which they live. "Lifeways" chapters discuss the economic and social aspects of the group, such as food, clothing, and arts and crafts. Other sections consider ceremonies and rites practiced by the nation, and contemporary issues. A chapter is devoted to language and includes a pronunciation guide and a list of common words. The photographs and drawings in Inuit are primarily archival and are gleaned from many sources, making it the visually stronger of the two volumes. Bial has contributed many of the photographs in Nez Perce, but, unfortunately, a number are mostly decorative shots with captions that attempt to add relevance to them. Endnotes include brief biographies of some of the notable individuals. Not all of the Web sites cited are active and not all are on a level appropriate to the books' audience. However, these titles are worthy of consideration for their unusual and comprehensive content.
