Review:
Before the arrival of Europeans, the people who lived in the woodlands of North America had come to a unique way of living in harmony with their environment. Most of the time, these Woodland Indians lived and worked outside. Their communal shelters became known as the wigwam and the longhouse. This easy-to-understand, interesting work of non-fiction, liberally illustrated, describes the daily lives of people in a culture now lost. The tone of the prose chillingly conveys the decimation of these Native Americans.
