Review by Booklist Reviews

Weigl has revived its American Indian Art and Culture series, which first appeared in 2004, and improved it with better page design and many new illustrations. Featuring color photos and other attractive graphic elements, the pages of the new edition look inviting. Somewhat shortened but largely the same, the texts provide information on the same broad range of topics. Every volume includes two-page chapters on topics such as homes, communities, clothing, food, religion, tools and weapons, music and dance, language and storytelling, and art, while each book reflects the distinctive culture it explores. Cherokee introduces the written Cherokee language developed by Sequoyah as well as the gathering of 100,000 people for Cherokee National Holiday each year. The new editions are recommended for libraries wishing to replace their 2004 editions or expand their collections on American Indians. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
