As short, handy treatments of the Plains Indian culture for general readers, these four slim texts the first in a series are good compilations of accurate information on art, anthropology, religion, and history. Those who most appreciate Mails's previous work for its beautifully crafted art displayed in a generous format will be disappointed by these books (despite the instructive black-and-white illustrations), but sensitivity, accuracy, thoroughness, and even enthusiasm for the interesting lives of Native peoples survive.
