Description

THE FIRST AMERICANS
Chester the Crab meets the first people to live in North America. He traces the cultures of the Anasazi and Pueblo in the Southwest, the Nootka and Kwakiutl in the Northwest, the Plains Indians in the Midwest, the Mound Builders in the Mississippi and Ohio river valleys and the Iroquois in the East – and their clash with European settlers and explorers. This colorful graphic novel will excite young readers, prepare students for further learning about history, and give kids insight into current events.

CHAPTER 1: THE PABLO REVOLT
Some of the people who crossed the Bering land bridge settle in what is now the American Southwest. They find a way to survive in this dry and hot climate. They build pueblo homes out of the clay ground and grow food by moving water to the fields. To them, gold is the corn they harvest. In the 1500s, the Spanish come looking for a different kind of gold.

CHAPTER 2: POCAHONTOS
Some of the people who cross over the Bering land bridge cross the entire North American continent. They settle among the rivers and thick forests of the eastern woodlands. These American Indians form the first large-scale representative democracy on the continent, The Iroquois League. Another eastern woodland Indian is a young woman named Pocahontas, who will be the difference between life and death for many of the first English settlers.

CHAPTER 3: NORTHWEST INDIANS
Some of the people who cross the Bering land bridge settle on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. In this area of the American Northwest, food is so easy to catch and shelter is so easy to make that the people have time to become great artists. From their villages rise the monuments we call totem poles.
