Publisher Comments:

Children's author Bobbie Kalman's new series Native Nations of North America is an ongoing series that looks at the lives of the indigenous peoples of North America before the land was divided into the countries of the United States and Canada. The books focus on geographical areas, language groups, important historical events, as well as village life and homes. Some of the books also explain the impact Europeans had on the lives of native peoples. Every step of the research, writing, and editing process has involved native writers and consultants and has been meticulously checked for cultural sensitivities — and, of course, Bobbie Kalman has put her teaching expertise to work on each book.<P>The plains region is a vast landscape which was home to many native nations. For hundreds of years, these peoples followed the giant, wandering herds of buffalo upon which they were dependent for food, clothing, tools, and shelter. Clear, informative text, beautiful illustrations, and maps, help describe all aspects of the life of native nations who called the plains their home.<P>Children will learn about: <BR>-- cultural differences among nations from different regions of the plains<BR>-- a discussion of the differences between sedentary and nomadic peoples<BR>-- how the buffalo were hunted and used<BR>-- different types of homes<BR>-- the importance of family life<BR>-- the arrival of the European settlers and how it affected the life of native peoples<BR>-- the introduction of the horse and how it changed the way native people hunted and traveled
