1) Muskogee - introduces itinerant river traders. Shows how trades were conducted, talks about body language and eye contact, great for weighing the value of trade goods.
2) Dakota - shows a boy on a buffalo hunt in the snow. Very clear information on the usefulness of the buffalo, shows the gear the hunters wear.
3) Huron - How to make a canoe from birchbark - the usefulness of natural materials
4) Tlingit - wood carving and painting - show totem poles and their meanings. Very good information about relative status within the group.
5) Nootka - Hunting fish and whales with spears - demonstrates using fish for oil and lamps
This book lacks any information about desert people or southwest people, and with the Nootka are in there, maybe some MesoAmerican people ought to have been included.
This is a very basic book, good for kids. Great illustrations.
