North, South, East, West: American Indians and the Natural Worldby Marsha Bol
Synopses & Reviews
Vibrant photographs and cultural lore are woven into a beautifully presented portrayal of the tribes of four Native American groups and their relationship with nature. Each chapter includes sidebars on related objects from other tribes and a section describing outside pressures from Euro-American. 200 color and 88 b&w photos. 30 color illustrations.
Book News Annotation:
This compendium focuses on four groups--the Hopi of the Southwest, the Tlingit of the Northwest, the Lakota of the Plains, and the Iroquois Nations of the Northeast; a short concluding chapter features urban Indians. Each page contains a mix of photos, captions, narrative text, and quotes from Indian songs, interviews, and writings. Two-hundred-plus photos of artifacts from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History's American Indian collections are featured, along with some 100 photos (both historical and contemporary) of the people who made and used the items. The whole comprises a visually interesting and information-rich--though somewhat disjointed--resource, lacking a single map or timeline.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Vibrant photographs and moving quotes give tangible expression to a rich heritage of Native American beliefs and customs, and demonstrate how Native groups maintain viable cultures within mondern-day America.
