This fascinating book looks at many of the lodges, or dwellings, built and used by the native nations across the continent. A map showing the lodges appears at the beginning of the book, and beautiful, detailed illustrations show the exteriors, interiors, and way of life in each lodge. The straightforward layout and informative text present information in an easy-to-follow format.
Homes include: -- wigwams, longhouses, tipis -- southern thatch homes and the pueblos of the Southwest -- the plankhouses of the Northwest Coast -- earth lodges, pit homes, hogans, and iglus
Every step of the research, writing, and editing process has involved native writers and consultants and has been meticulously checked for cultural sensitivities -- and, of course, Bobbie Kalman has put her teaching expertise to work on each book.
