Native Americans - Final Chapters


It's been a long couple of months, but I finally finished the last few chapters of the Native American Book for Nomad Press.  It was a really interesting journey, and I learned quite a bit about Native Americans.  I think these books will be great for kids and open their minds up to numerous different cultures in North America.

Pacific Northwest Totem Pole

The last two chapters I worked on were about The Pacific Northwest and The Arctic.  They were both equally fascinating and very different, but with certain similarities like the sea life they hunted and their coastal lifestyle.  The Arctic tribes had more weather issues, however!

I'm happy to share with you a small selection of these final chapters.  Working on these books was a great experience in not only process, but in subject matter as well. Enjoy!
