KIRKUS REVIEW

Two personal histories- of the Seneca boy Sharp Shins and his adopted white brother in the days before the Revolution, and of Sacajawea of Lewis and Clark expedition fame, are highlights in a wide but informative sketch of North and a few South American Indians. Maps and an appendixed list of Indians by state help locate the different tribes. Well known tribes, the Cherokee and the Iroquois are given more consideration than smaller ones, though we see something of the Northwest coast through Sacajawea's eyes and are presented with fair pictures of pueblo life. Aztecs and Incas are relegated to an end chapter, but the information is clear and exciting because the civilizations were so. Good introduction.
