Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Each title in this series gives readers an introduction to a Native American tribe, with chapters covering its origins, history, settlement, culture, and contemporary life. The text is easy to read and useful for reports but full of generalizations. Photographs and historic paintings help make the books approachable. Reading list, timeline, websites. Glos., ind.

Gr 4-8-With numerous fact boxes, photos, historical drawings, and a list of suggested activities, these titles are wonderful resources. Covering the history, traditions, and modern lives of each nation, the books present a clear look at these Native peoples. Excellent bibliographies, a time line, and glossary are appended. The Web site listings have the typical problems associated with them-couldn't be accessed at review time or the site is written for an older audience. Fact boxes cover topics ranging from each nation's language to the Pueblo Revolt (Hopi) to the Chief Mountain Hotshots (Blackfoot) to Devil's Shoestring (Creek). Interesting quotes from members are lightly scattered throughout each text. The only problem is that the text in Hopi ends somewhat abruptly without a sense of conclusion. Other than these small quibbles, all three titles are solid choices.-S K Joiner, Brazoria County Library System, Angleton, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
