Older boys and girls will find fascinating information on the customs, the culture, and the history of Native Americans, with details on tribal domestic life, clothing, arts and crafts, weapons, agriculture, relationship with animals and nature, and much more. Presenting its details in an A-to-Z short-entry format with color illustrations on every page, this book offers brief, informative profiles of all major tribes, including the Iroquois, Algonquians, Muskogees, Sioux, Aztecs, Athapaskans, Dakotas, Osages, and many others. Here too are capsule biographies of memorable individuals, such as Comanche chief Quanah Parker, Sioux chief Sitting Bull, Spanish conquistador Francisco Coronado, U.S. General George Armstrong Custer, and others. In addition to color illustrations and photos, readers will find maps, an introductory overview of tribes from the Arctic to the present-day American southwest, and a brief chronology of related historical events from the 15th to the 19th century.
