Review


"Native American Action Stories: Exciting Events in Nine Different Tribes" appears in its third revised edition and broadly defines 'events' as moving beyond military confrontations and into areas of competition, hunting, village attacks and more. It also embraces and retells the history of tribes across North and Central America, which makes fora satisfyingly diverse contrast of tribes, history, and actions. This different approach features a fine re-definition of Native actions and life challenges.  It is especially user-friendly for an often adolescent readership by using a larger font style and an inviting format.
 
The author's "play sections" highlightthe unique approach of these stories: "Fight-to-the-death forest ambushesby Northeastern natives in the dense forests; athletic games--similar tolacrosse--so physically demanding that natives of the Southeast referred tothese contests as "Little Brother of War"; Eskimos stalking largepolar bears near the frigid Arctic Circle; Aztec sacrificial combat held in thecapital of their kingdom--all of these actions were experienced by variousgroups in different parts of the Americas. "
 
All this said, readers who expect battlescenarios may be surprised to find the depth of history presented in thesestories, which includes plenty of political background and discussions ofintertribal relationships and how these were affected by the arrival of thewhite man: "Among the first Indians with whom the French traded were theAlgonquins and the Hurons. As a result, these two large tribes--located in whatis mainly Canadian territory-- became powerful and benefited greatly from theirEuropean ally. In the present New York State area lived a group of five tribesbroadly called Iroquois who, although possessing the same language and culture,had no real bonds of cooperation. The only thing they could agree upon was theirarch-enemy--the hated Algonquins--was growing richer and stronger through Frenchbacking."
 
These nonfiction reader segmentsaccompany each story and add to the tales of tribal encounters and experiences,making this collection of interest far beyond its intended juvenilereadership.  Anyone who wants a lively,well-rounded survey of Native American history will find Native American ActionStories a fine pick that doesn't sacrifice historical fact for the sake ofaction, but combines both in a vivid, memorable series of tales highlyrecommended for all ages.

From the Author

I have written a book "Native American Action Stories", portraying nine differenttribes that lived in various regions of North and Central America mostly beforethe arrival of white explorers.  Thenarrative sections are exact historical facts; the following segments are plays(historical fiction) based upon these preceding facts.  Maps and illustrations accompany allchapters.
 
Areviewer wrote, "Anyone who wants a lively, well-rounded survey of NativeAmerican history will find "Native American Action Stories" a fine pick thatdoesn't sacrifice historical fact for the sake of actions, but combines both ina vivid, memorable series of tales recommended for all ages."  This work has earned many other accolades foradolescents such as: best books featuring Native Americans in a 20-year period(by Amazon), numerous 5-star ratings, among best books of year (2013 and 2014),etc.

This is the third edition.  I began withthe desire that readership would range upward from junior high to those incommunity college.  Now this list hasincreased in both categories: with those in college as well asadolescents.
