Synopses & Reviews

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>This fascinating book looks at many of the lodges, or dwellings, built and used by the native nations across the continent. A map showing the lodges appears at the beginning of the book, and beautiful, detailed illustrations show the exteriors, interiors, and way of life in each lodge. The straightforward layout and informative text present information in an easy-to-follow format.<P>Homes include: <BR>-- wigwams, longhouses, tipis<BR>-- southern thatch homes and the pueblos of the Southwest<BR>-- the plankhouses of the Northwest Coast<BR>-- earth lodges, pit homes, hogans, and iglus
