Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7-10. When Columbus landed in Hispaniola in 1492, there were more than 800 tribes and an estimated 100 million to 145 million people living in the Americas. The American Indian Contributions to the World series highlights the knowledge, accomplishments, and cultural practices of those groups. This title describes the extensive trade networks that existed throughout the Americas and the systems of roads and trails that facilitated travel. Sports, games, military tactics, and government are also covered in this volume. Black-and-white drawings, photos, and maps complement the detailed text, and boxed features offer interesting notes and explanations. Because contributions of Native Americans are often disregarded--or minimized--in social studies and history textbooks, the solid titles in this series make valuable, necessary reading for both teachers and students of American history. A glossary, a list of tribes, maps, and a reading list are appended. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2005 Booklist"
