Introduces the traditional daily life of the Native people who lived on the Great Plains of North America.

Publishers Description
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.

Life in a Plains Camp looks at a nomadic community that based its livelihood on hunting buffalo. People who were constantly on the move depended on one another for happiness and support. Men, women, and children worked together to make sure the entire camp was fed and clothed. Beautiful artwork helps illustrate the daily lives and tasks of the people of the plains and portrays their rich cultural heritage.

Detailed text describes:
-- how buffalo meat was cured and how skins were tanned
-- how a tipi was set up
-- different types of plains clothing
-- spiritual beliefs and family values
-- the daily lives of men, women, children, and elders
-- leisure activities and celebrations

Terrific Book About Traditional Plains Native American Culture  Oct 11, 2007
I liked this book because it provides very insightful information on the Plains Indians. It makes sure the reader understands the different people and the cultures - similarities and differences. I was glad to understand how tribes and clans were related. How the Plains Indians survived on consuming Bison meat was pretty interesting too. A very well researched book.
