"Text deals with the first peoples to live in North America. It explains how they were able to adapt to the environment of the North West which was very different from their homelands. The culture of the people is discussed in the book from what they wore to totem poles. Each chapter starts with a question about the people and then the text answers it for the reader. The people were soon changing again as more and more new people came to this area from other continents. The people today are discussed also. The fact explained to the reader is that todays Northwest Coast Indians have prospered as well as carrying on the traditions and beliefs of their ancestors. – E.

Book Pushin’ Cats Blog (Tri State Young Adult Review Committee) - Joan Theal

"This book discusses foods, clothing, housing, beliefs, and life today pertaining to Indians of the Northwest Coast. Using the format of answers to questions, it gives quite a complete overview of the Native American tribes living along the Northwest coast of North America. It covers Alaska and south along the coast of Canada through Washington and Oregon. This series stresses the similarities among the tribes in the highlighted geographic area. It explains the early interactions between the Pacific Northwest Coast Indians and non-Indians. The title includes a timeline, glossary, and index. The source list for further information is extensive. It includes four books, four web sites and five places to visit. The photography is bright and colorful, and it greatly enhances the text. The coverage is balanced, emphasizing general patterns among the tribes, and then that pattern is illustrated through details about a specific group. It would provide an excellent introductory reference to the study of these tribes. The First Nations of North America series divides all tribes into ten geographic areas. Adapting to their surroundings, the tribes in each area share similar customs. Each title gives a good overview of the history and culture of the tribes covered. – Joan Theal Book Pushin’ Cats Blog (Tri State Young Adult Review Committee) 4/3/2012" - Book Pushin’ Cats Blog (Tri State Young Adult Review Committee)
