Most native peoples live in modern homes today, but years ago, they lived in vastly different dwellings. These inventive buildings were constructed of available natural resources, such as wood, grass, and adobe bricks, without the use of machinery we rely on today. Readers will appreciate the vivid photographs that accompany the interesting text and surprising fact boxes in this indispensable volume, beneficial to any elementary social studies classroom.
