5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for classroom use - a real bargain 21. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
It's actually hard, finding good books on American Indian topics that work in the classroom (I teach at a medium-sized public university). There are plenty of out-of-date books. Lots of terrible "pc" books. But few that actually convey information in an attractive and interesting fashion. This is definitely one of the latter type. The maps are clear, the illustrations accurate, and the amount of information presented is surprising. There's a tremendous amount of material packed between the covers of the "Atlas"---and it's a good deal more than a collection of maps. This is one of those books that some students---especially those planning on becoming teachers---may actually decide to keep. My own copy is well-worn from use, and often consult it to clear up questions both large and small. The best comprehensive source I've seen for this kind of money.

I bought this book because I needed to have a clearer geographical picture on the North American Indian Nations covered by "500 Nations" (the TV-series and the CD-ROM). What I got is a lot more than I expected! The title "Atlas..." is truly an understatement! This book covers the geography, the social and historical issues involved in the genesis and evolution of these Great Nations!
If you're looking for a very extensive reference work on the North American Indian Nations, buy this book!

This is the Atlas every school (college and university) library should have. Most classroom teachers and all who asssume the resonsibility of any kind of Native American studies .

Although it has a good deal of Canadian material and maps, I am less certain how well it compares to Native atlas sources that might be available from Canadian publishers, lacking such comparisons, I can still say it is a fine source for those educators who wish to give an indignous overview perspective.

As to be expected in an atlas, maps are the heart of the visual presentations of data. These maps are black outlines and hatchings, most often on brownish colored ground. All except for a few big 2-page spreads will photocopy all right for class handouts (though white backgrounds would have been preferable). They are well labeled.

Braun, a former real-property cartographer, has followed (and used many of the maps from) the classic renditions of Massey and Driver, to present physiographic features and cultural technologies of the pre-contact cultures. (The Massey-Driver maps are the only ones that are credited to a source, though I recognized sources for most of the others.) She reproduces only a few old maps, and those mostly for illustration.

The analytic maps are clear, accurate outlines, and include (for the U.S.) present-day reservations, land claims (U.S. claims commission), cessions, and many maps summarizing historical and cultural data.

For Canada, maps show all treaties in outline, but for present-day settlements, there is only the Canadian National Atlas Service folding map mess of some 2,400 specks, without even the numbers that correlate these with some 600 bands. Canadian Reserve maps are still wanting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More than an atlas. 29. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Not just maps, but a concise enclopedia of the North American
Indian, with brief but comprehensive coverage of
history, culture, languages, lifeways, the
impact of the European explorers and the subsequent
deterioration of native American life.

As conflict characterized the Indian experience in
historical times, wars are treated in considerable
detail, with basic sympathy to the natives' position
but with a welcome avoidance of stereotyping and
sentimentality.

With Facts On File's usual excellent maps, bibliography,
and index, and useful appendices with a chronology,
historical and contemporary locations, reservations,
museums, and more.

Essential for anyone interested in the
Indian experience, and highly recommended for the
reference shelf of the general reader.

(The numerical rating above is a default setting
within Amazon's format. This reviewer does not
employ numerical ratings.)
