Grade 4-7–These titles fit nicely into many state curriculums. Unfortunately, the first book seems both sugarcoated and repetitive, frequently describing the Ojibwe's seasonal lifestyle and foods, while leaving out some important information, including the Wisconsin Death March. Suzanne Williams's Ojibwe Indians
(Heinemann, 2003) has more interesting and comprehensive illustrations. Roza's title fills a need as it introduces three groups of Native Americans, dating from 1000 B.C. to about A.D. 1650, who settled along the Ohio River. These cultures shared the tradition of building mounds, probably relating to burial ceremonies. Numerous color illustrations show the mounds, with some aerial shots.–Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI
