KIRKUS REVIEW

Like The Art of the Woodland Indians (1976), this is one of Glubok's less cohesive surveys, with exhibits ranging from crude Stone Age tools and weapons . . . to European travelers' drawings of Indians and their villages. . . to turn-of-the-century photographs of Seminoles in eclectic costume. The text, too, switches from describing the objects (sometimes redundantly), speculating on their use, or explaining how they were made to outlining dances, games, or burial customs. (A canoer engraved on a fragment of conch shell prompts Glubok to review the process of making canoes.) Another region heard from--of interest as such.
