The Navajo is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. The series contributing editor is Irving Nelson, Program Director with the Office of the Navajo Nation Library. The series is designed to appeal to students in grade 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Navajo people, and explains that the Navajo call themselves the Dine, meaning the people. A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Apache people, which include New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Navajo today. This book also introduces students to an important Navajo leader, Barboncita. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a graphic artist from the Mohawk Nation. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 3 website recommendations, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Navajo people once lived. It is accurate and bias-free. This series should be available in all school and public libraries. ATOS Reading Level: 4.3; Reading Level: 3.2; Guided Reading Level: P
