Life in a Plains Camp

"Four excellent titles by Bobbie Kalman pair easy explanations and appealing cover art with durable hardcover presentations librarians will appreciate...All provide a fine blend of information and color for kids in grades 3-5." —Midwest Book Review, 09/01 "Accessible books about topics that are studied in most elementary schools. The information on housing, storage, village structure and family life is straightforward, easy to read and interesting. The texts are peppered with full-color illustrations - at least one to a page - that depict Native Americans in historical times engaged in daily activities such as eating, storytelling, and building lodges." —School Library Journal, 09/01
