Summary
By the time Christopher Columbus landed on the shores of North America in 1492, it was already home to three hundred Native American nations. Each of these nations had an established society, its own territory, language, and life-style. Within the pages of this series, the Indians of four American regions come to life. Each book includes dozens of colorful illustrations and photographs that help capture the traditions, history, social customs, and governing systems of many tribes. The Native Americans offers a spirited perspective and exploration of America's diverse native people and their rich cultural history.

Explore the vast grasslands of the Plains Indians that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains and from Canada's Saskatchewan River basin to central Texas. You'll learn about social activities, spiritual customs, and governmental systems. Scores of colorful illustrations and photographs portray the artwork, clothing, and cultural traditions of the Pawnee, Blackfoot,Cheyenne, Sioux, Cree, Crow, and other tribes. Indians of the Great Plains is a fascinating celebration of America's diverse native peoples and their rich cultural history.
