The Algonquin is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. This title's contributing editor is Bob Goulais, Communications Officer with the Anishinabek Nation. The series is designed to appeal to students in grade 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Algonquin (Anishinabek Nation) located in the eastern woodlands on both sides of the Great Lakes. The Anishinabek Nation includes the Algonquin, Ojibwa (Chippewa), Delaware, Mississauga, Odawa, and Potawatami (Potawatomi). A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Algonquin in Ontario and Quebec. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Algonquin today. This book also introduces students to an important Algonquin leader of the 1600s, Iroquet. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and archival photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a graphic artist from the Mohawk Nation. The section about present-day Algonquin people briefly describes a modern powwow. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 2 website recommendations, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Anishinabek people once lived. It is accurate and bias-free. This series should be available in all school and public libraries. ATOS Reading Level: 4.5; Reading Level: 3.1; Guided Reading Level: P
