Travel back in time to celebrate the culture and lifestyle of the North American woodlands Indians with this carefully researched and accurately rendered coloring book. Artist Pete Copeland has skillfully reconstructed 41 finely detailed scenes that span more than four centuries of tribal life.
Here are realistic views of hunters of the Pequot and Massachuset tribes in the early 1600s, a Passamaquoddy man spearing fish (1604), Virginia Algonquians meeting Europeans (1635), a French missionary among the Illinois Indians (1735), Ottawa warriors of the 17th and 19th centuries and Penobscot basket weavers (1937). A number of other tribes are represented as well — among them the Miami Kickapoo, Fox, Sauk, Winnebago, Shawnee, Menominee, and Western Delaware.
An entertaining collection of ready-to-color drawings — complete with fact-filled captions — this book will not only intrigue anyone interested in Native American cultures but will also serve as an important classroom teaching tool.
