Great pictures and lots of information throughout. This book captures my 1st grader's attention. Will be a good resource for homeschooling. For those concerned, this book acknowledges that archeologists do not agree when human beings "trekked across the Ice Age land bridge from Siberia". It states various theories as to who & when people were in the Americas. Love the organization of the book and so will be wonderful resource in our American studies.

DK Eyewitness books are great and informative. I am teaching ESOL students who are learning English and taking content courses at the same time. They are unfamiliar with American History and Native American history is an even greater enigma to them. This book which supplies graphics and photos, allows students to gather a lot of information visually at a time when they have troubling reading English.

We are a home school family & love having educational books on hand. This year, we are learning about American history. My younger boys love the idea of Indians... this book is showing them so much more about REAL Indians & their life & history!

This book is nicely divided into the different indian regions of the United Staes. DK always has realistic photos and great information on indian tradition and culture. I had originally checked it out at our library and decided to buy a copy because it fit so well into our study of indians. DK is always a good buy for any topic.

Lot's of good pictures, not enough to use for a report on a specific tribe. Organization is not by tribe, but more by area of the country. I do like having this in the house for my kids to explore and familiarize themselves with this topi.

I normally love all the DK books, but this one missed the mark. It did a great job describing Native American life and beliefs, but only a small handful. I would have preferred that this book covered the larger and more prominant tribes, rather than just covering tribes from different geographical locations. It is kind of like they decided to demonstrate aspects of life from every corner of America instead of focusing on the main players. However it was well researched and presented. Great for adults and kids.

Eyewitness books are predictably excellent, using photographs and blurbs to pack a ton of information onto every page. Not much in this book on trade networks or warfare, but a good look at the technology of Indian groups.
