Reviews - What do customers think about Concise Encyclopedia of the American Indian?
Moderately useful Jun 17, 2000
While the information available in this book is factual, it is far from complete. The book may be useful as a starting point for older children's research or for research for brief elementary school projects; however, middle school students will need much more in depth information. It also does not have information about lesser-known tribes. I found the book "500 Nations" to be a better all-around resource on this subject
