Format: Paperback
I am a fan of the "Everyday Life" series, and this is the most detailed of them that I have seen. I was impressed. It has more information over a wider variety of topics than I expected, especially considering that this is such a broad subject.
This, however, is also the book's weakness. The author was asked to cover such a massive range of information (the 'everyday life' of every American Indian tribe within a hundred-year period) that she would have needed three times the page count to do each tribe justice.
Most chapters (Family Life, Wars, Weapons and Treaties, Clothing and Accessories, etc.) are divided into geographical area, with information about the tribes in that area mixed within the section. For example, under Family Life, Great Basin, we find paragraphs on the birthing traditions of the Shoshane, puberty rituals of the Paiute, marriage among the Ute, and death rituals of the Shoshane. All detailed and engaging, making this an excellent overview, but you may be frustrated if you're hoping to learn in-depth about any specific tribe.

Fact based, chapter by topic (housing, food, war) of various tribes sorted again by east coast, west coast, south, etc. Not an in depth analysis but good enough for writing an essay or getting a ballpark idea of what the Indians were like. The term "everyday life" may have implied you wake up at sunrise and follow his or her activities til sleep, but that is not what you get, it is lists of how they built their homes, what they ate, etc, but not in any "typical day" format.

This is a very interesting and thorough book which I have been using for research into the Ute Indian tribe. I found the book very helpful.
