Bringing a fresh perspective to multicultural studies, Greaves illuminate the current situation of 13 traditional peoples in the United States and Canada. These are small tribal groups, ethnic groups with a unique way of life, new immigrants, and refugees with strong roots in war-torn homelands. A broad diversity of cultures is presented, including the Lummi in Washington State, the African Americans in the coastal zone of Georgia, the Amish of Lancaster County, and the Hmong in Wisconsin.
