Horn Book Review

Covering a great deal of information in forty-eight pages, this book makes generalizations and simplifies complex issues. Illustrated with photos, the text includes a few facts about some customs, brief discussion of the effects of immigration, and mention of Native Americans today. Feinstein uses a broad brush to paint native peoples as at peace in their own world until Europeans brought catastrophe. Reading list, timeline. Glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
