Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2011 November)

Gr 3–5—Each book begins with a "Find the Truth" page that presents two true/false questions that will be answered within the text. The first chapter includes an informative map that shows the featured tribe's origins and historic and current locations. Subsequent sections describe how the people lived before and after contact with white settlers, conflicts with the American government and resettlement on reservations, food, organization and customs, and current status. A final "True Statistics" page, which also answers the true/false statements, completes each book. An attractive combination of large, colorful illustrations and photos supplement the texts. Although coverage is largely standard for books about Native Americans, the interesting format and visual appeal of these titles will make them popular with elementary readers.
