Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2005 December)

Gr 4 Up -The pages of this book are chock-full of quotations, songs, and brief stories that exemplify Native American attitudes toward nature. No segment is longer than half a page; most are a few sentences. Black Elk, Standing Bear, Brave Buffalo, and others observe the importance of various animals and the sacred qualities of all living things. All 120 sections are documented. The spaces between text blocks are filled with Goble's familiar illustrations based on traditional Native American designs and colors. Few readers will wade through the entire book. Even browsing is difficult. Perhaps this dense volume could serve as a reference source for teachers planning units on Native American culture. Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve's Enduring Wisdom (Holiday House, 2003) includes fewer sayings but is less overwhelming visually and verbally.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
