Series Review: Native American Library
Each title in the series covers how each group first came to the Americas, experienced reservation life, and eventually achieved self-government, followed by chapters on Land and Origins, History, Traditional Way of Life, Life Today, and Current Issues. Final chapters address controversial topics such as land claims, natural resources, rights, and casinos. Each title includes extension activities such as crafts, cultural projects, debate topics, writing prompts, and ideas for social activism. Additional features include pertinent quotes set off from the text and retellings of myths. The set is visually appealing with numerous full-color captioned illustrations. The titles will attract browsers and also provide accessible support for student researchers. Highly Recommended.
