Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
Co-authored by Native American historians and enthusiasts Reg Ashwell and David Hancock, Indian Tribes Of The Northwest is a beautifully illustrated, 95-page, descriptive compilation of information identifying the Native American tribes grouped regionally and ethnically into American Northwest, Plateau Tribes, and the Athapaskan. The Northwest Coast tribes include the Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian, Kwakiutl, Bella Coola, Nootka, and Coast Salish. The Plateu Tribes are comprised of the Interior Salish and the Kootenay. The Athapaskan Tribes are the Chilcotin, Carrier, Sekani, Tahitan, Beaver, Kaska, and Slave. The photography is beautiful and the text provides an informed and informative overview. Also very highly recommended for personal, academic, and community library Native American Studies reference collections from Hancock House Publishers is Reg Ashwell and David Hancock's Coast Salish. Students, librarians, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in Native American tribal culture, art and history would be well advised to visit the Hancock House Publishers website at www.hancockhouse.com for a complete listing of all of their superbly produced and inexpensive Native American titles.
