This is one of a series of books, each packed with information, with about half of each page being generously illustrated in an evocative depiction of life as lived in a castle or Indian camp. Dress and what it symbolised, games and social life, the structure of society, war and the role of women - different aspects of life are explored on each double page spread. Exactly what age group they are pitched at is unclear, however, as a certain degree of prior knowledge is assumed, and even an older child would need some orientation and guidance from an adult or other reference books. So 'Life in an Indian Camp' talks about different regions in America without identifying them for the reader, and the maps, which are not terribly clear, do not set the states in the larger context of the country as a whole. Thus a limited awareness of geography would make this book rather a superficial contribution to any understanding of the subject. All the books in the series are translated from the original Italian by an Italian, and the odd infelicitous or clumsy phrase gives this away. Not perfect, and could prove disappointing, but full nonetheless with lively information on the life of earlier times. (Kirkus UK)
