Life in a Plains Camp

Life in a Plains Camp


By Bobbie Kalman

Life in a Plains Camp looks at a nomadic community that based its livelihood on hunting buffalo. People who were constantly on the move depended on one another for happiness and support. Men, women, and children worked together to make sure the entire camp was fed and clothed. Beautiful artwork helps illustrate the daily lives and tasks of the people of the plains and portrays their rich cultural heritage. Detailed text describes:
• how buffalo meat was cured and how skins were tanned
• how a tipi was set up
• different types of plains clothing
• spiritual beliefs and family values
• the daily lives of men, women, children, and elders
• leisure activities and celebrations

This book is geared toward children, but great reading for any age.
