Newly expanded by more than 70 pages from the original 1994 publication, this substantial reference remains one of the most elaborately illustrated books on Native Americans now in print... Highly recommended for North American historical and ethnographical collections. (Savannah Schroll Library Journal)
Provides concise information about Native peoples north of the Rio Grande, including Canada... Although similar to other one-volume encyclopedias, the rich illustration and supplemental sections make this volume worthwhile. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels. (M. Cedar Face, Southern Oregon University Choice 2008-04-01)
A delight to both eye and pocketbook... The indexing, greatly improved over that of the 1999 edition, includes tribe names, illustrations, and maps; and the cross-referencing between entries is also greatly improved... The expanded glossary is greatly enhanced by having the photographic examplees in place with the alphabetic entry. The quality of illustrations and photographs is excellent and is indeed the most improved part of the book.... The fact that Firefly Books could do this exquisite volume for such a small price is to be commended. Recommended for most types of libraries. (Diana Shonrock Booklist (advance review from uncorrected proof) 2008-05-01)
Excellent color photographs, maps, and a well-illustrated glossary....School librarians will appreciate this book, especially the colorful maps, charts, and photographs. It is quite easy to be dazzled by the photography. (Karen D. Harvey American Reference Books Annual 2008)
The richly illustrated, large format volume includes new maps, additional and better presented historical and contemporary photographs, art by renowned illustrator Richard Hook, and summer tables (e.g., of Indian languages), essays on "The Indian Today" and museums with Indian art and material, 2000 Census and other data on the North American Indian population, and a glossary. (Book News Inc.)
Revised and expanded, Johnson's Encyclopedia of Native Tribes of North America is a delight both to the eye and the pocketbook.... The fact that Firefly Books could do this exquisite volume for such a small price is to be commended. Recommended. (Diana Shonrock Booklist 2008-05-01)
Although similar to other one-volume encyclopedias, the rich illustrations and supplemental sections make this volume worthwhile. Recommended. All levels. (M. Cedar Face, Southern Oregon University Choice Vol. 45 No 8)
Newly expanded by more than 70 pages from the original 1994 publication, this substantial reference remains one of the most elaborately illustrated books on Native Americans now in print. Divided into ten region-categorized chapters, it offers a one- to two-paragraph description of the many tribes living within recognized regional boundaries. The color plates, previously located in a separate section, now appear beside relevant textural passages. Period and cultural artifact photographs have been added. Highly recommended for North American historical and ethnographic collections. (Library Journal)
