Native Americans hunted, fished, farmed, gathered, and raised animals for food. Depending on where they lived, this meant one tribe’s diet could be vastly different from another tribe’s. Food is always an attention-grabbing topic, and readers will find this book especially interesting as they learn about the culinary dishes and traditions of a variety of peoples across America. Fact boxes offer additional information and contribute to the eye-catching layout.
