The Nez Perce is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. The series editor is Barbara Gray-Kanatiiosh, an Akwesasne Mohawk writer. The series is designed to appeal to students in grades 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 Nez Perce as the Columbia Plateau that includes Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. The Nez Perce call themselves Nimiipu that means "The People." A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Nez Perce people. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Nez Perce today. This book also introduces students to an important Nez Perce leader, Chief Joseph. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and archival photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a Mohawk artist from Akwesasne. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 2 web site links, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Nez Perce once lived and how they continue to maintain their cultural heritage. It is accurate and bias-free. This series is recommended for all school and public libraries. Guided Reading Level: P
