"Young readers and researchers will find this new series on Native American homes both interesting and useful. Covering the spectrum of housing used by the early natives, the series includes the igloos of the Inuit, the pueblos of the Southwestern Indians, plank houses of the Northwest, the Iroquois longhouses of the northeast, the wickiups used by the natives of the Great Basin and the Apache, and the plains Indians’ tepees. Some readers will be surprised at the wide variety of dwellings built by the early inhabitants of North America. The books are arranged by chapters describing what the structure looked like and the people who built it; the materials used and the design; and how the people lived and worked inside the structure and the village. A section on special structures, such as meeting or council lodges, is also included. The glossary includes the meaning and pronunciation of unusual terms found in bold print in the text. Another interesting feature is the FactHound Web site where the reader can find safe and interesting related Internet sites. An index and bibliography are also included. This series will be popular with readers interested in Native Americans or those doing research on this topic. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"This series is a very simple introduction to the architecture of some indigenous American peoples. Clear full-page color photographs face pages of simplistic facts set in large type. They inform us of the function, materials of construction, the makers, and perhaps a bit of the history of these dwellings. Often the photographs include some of the makers so we obtain a better sense of the cultural context. A few “further reading” references and Internet sites as well as a glossary are included. Early elementary, even kindergarten children should find these small-size books attractive for browsing or for seeking first facts about the subject." - School Arts Magazine
