Description

Praise for the first edition:

"A model of excellence in the art of reference volume publishing ... Every public and school library ... should acquire this treasure. It will remain the standard for many years to come." -- Dr. James A. Clifton, Department of Anthropology, Western Michigan University

"This substantial reference remains one of the most elaborately illustrated books on Native Americans now in print... Highly recommended." -- Library Journal

This superb, fully illustrated reference offers the most up-to-date and essential facts on the identity, kinships, locations, populations and cultural characteristics of some 400 separately identifiable peoples native to the North American continent, both living and extinct, from the Canadian Arctic to the Rio Grande. This revised edition adds 32 pages, updates all facts and provides improved illustrations and maps.

The abundance of illustrations and photographs form an especially rich store of material describing the vast range of Native American material culture. The maps are valuable pictorial representations of major historical events. Population and settlement trends based on the most recent US Census paint detailed portraits of all officially recognized tribes.

The book includes:

  • More than 300 color and archival photographs, many of them improved selections
  • Extensive visual coverage of tribal dress and cultural artifacts
  • 21 regional maps, including prehistoric cultural and historic sites and tribe distribution maps, as well as maps showing movement of tribes and non-indigenous troops during conflicts, all updated as needed
  • More than 100 specially commissioned color illustrations, also improved as needed.

This is one of the most comprehensive, up-to-date and useful references published in recent years. Scholarly and accessible, it is an important record of the Native American peoples and an essential purchase for schools and libraries.
