A Preliminary Bibliography of Selected Children's Books About American Indians.
Newman, Killian, Ed.
This bibliography lists 63 books selected from a total of over 200 books in print which had been read, reviewed, and recommended in each case by an American Indian. Books are categorized according to the age group for which they are considered suitable; intervals used are ages six to eight, eight to ten, ten to twelve, and twelve to young adult. The listing is designed to help the selection of "reading material which is both authentic and fair" so as to "enable young people to understand and appreciate the life of American Indians as it really was and as it really is." [This list is a preliminary version of a larger bibliography to be published in 1970.] (JM)
