Item description for Native Homes (Native Nations of North America) by Bobbie Kalman...

Children's author Bobbie Kalman's new series Native Nations of North America is an ongoing series that looks at the lives of the indigenous peoples of North America before the land was divided into the countries of the United States and Canada. The books focus on geographical areas, language groups, important historical events, as well as village life and homes. Some of the books also explain the impact Europeans had on the lives of native peoples. 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.

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

Reviews - What do customers think about Native Homes (Native Nations of North America)?

Native Homes: an excellent overview  Mar 18, 2002
In "Native Homes" Bobbie Kalman continues her series, Native Nations of North America, with an overview of traditional dwellings and how they reflected the climate, surroundings and lifestyles of the various nations or groups. Rather than focusing on specific groups, with their individual languages, cultures and beliefs, Kalman organizes the information according to general lifestyle and regions, showing us a variety of homes for both nomadic and sedentary peoples. Longhouses, wigwams, thatched homes, tipis, earth and log lodges, hogans, pueblos, plank houses and arctic homes are all portrayed in varying degrees of detail. A table of contents, glossary and index are included, providing easy access to specific information. The colorful illustrations are drawn from a variety of sources, and span the range from full-scale paintings by well known artists, to works that were commissioned to support the text. There are few books in print that offer a general overview of traditional native homes and the availability of natural resources which gave rise to each. With its attractive format and readable text, this book would be a welcome addition to any library.
