Review

As Putt says at the beginning of this book, there is a lack of texts
that interpret Native history in terms that can be understood by the
general public, including children. Part of the lack may be due to the
fact that previous accounts have sometimes been disparaging, and one of
the values of this book is that it may help to instill a sense of pride
in the cultures that succeeded for thousands of years on this continent.
Children will enjoy this blend of archaeological accounts and
more-traditional tales. The accompanying drawings and photographs are
both eye-catching and informative.
