The Apache is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. The series contributing editor is Chris Coder, a consultant to the Yavapai-Apache Nation. 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 Jicarilla, Mescalero, Mimbrenos, Chiricahua, Dilzhee, Aravaipa, Coyotero, and Lipan Apache people. A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Apache people, which include New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Mexico, and Kansas. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Apache today. This book also introduces students to an important Apache leader, Geronimo. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and archival photos as well as detailed illustrations by Kevin Shives, a graphic artist from the Yavapai-Apache Nation. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 2 website recommendations, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Apache people once lived. It is accurate and bias-free. This series should be available in all school and public libraries. Reading Level: 3.1; Guided Reading Level: P
