The Iroquois: Longhouse Builders is part of the Capstone Press series, America's First Peoples. The author credits Tara Froman from the Woodland Cultural Centre as her consultant and the reader expects an accurate and informative result. That is not always the case for this title. The book is aimed at younger readers and the publisher suggests the book is suitable for grades two to five. The text begins with a description of the Iroquois homeland and the meaning of the name as well as that the Iroquois prefer Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse). Next the text describes traditional Iroquois longhouses as homes and the importance of clans. The next four brief chapters explain how a longhouse was built long ago, what life was like inside the longhouse and how the people spent winters in the longhouse. The next section explains the village setting and the types of plants growing in their gardens. The final chapter describes Iroquois people today and where they live and how modern longhouses are still the central focus for their ceremonies. Three extension activities are included in the book and include a variation of the bone dice game that uses buttons, a recipe for making maple candy, and instructions for braiding a raffia wristband. The misinformation includes a statement that all six of the Iroquois Confederacy spoke an Iroquois language; the failure to acknowledge that giving thanks is an important component of longhouse ceremonies; and the definition for Iroquois in the glossary section that the word means member of the Six Nations Confederacy. Photographs and drawings selected to illustrate the book are generally acceptable especially the inclusion of two John Fadden drawings. One longhouse interior colour drawing features an odd assemblage of items for everyday use such as oversized woven baskets that have a Southwest design, a Plains-style painted robe, and a lack of interior partitions for sleeping. The book also includes a glossary, bibliography, index and list of Iroquois museums to visit, including the Woodland Cultural Centre. Despite the minor flaws, this book can be useful for elementary students who are looking for basic information about Iroquois longhouses. Guided Reading Level: R; ATOS Level: 4.5; Reading Level: 4.5 .
