The American Indian Experience
It's hard to imagine school or public libraries that serve American Indians within their communities lacking Greenwood's American Indian Experience database. As a native Oklahoman, I have long recognized the need for these unique resources for classroom research and instruction, and yet the opportunity to build such a collection of outstanding resources is often limited. However, Greenwood's American Indian Experience provides not only a depth that might not otherwise be possible in the school library, it also captures the importance of exploring issues and ideas that might not be addressed within the regular history classroom.
Once again, Greenwood's American Mosaic Online Resource database series has expanded to include an excellent online resource that simply must be added to those library collections that seek to provide outstanding resources for instruction and understanding of Native Americans. This web database has a plethora of information that would be very useful for students doing an in-depth study of Native Americans.
I was impressed with this site. It does much to provide the accurate portrayals of American Indian history and culture often lacking in standard secondary and college sources and especially problematic at the elementary level. It is recommended for school and general academic libraries, and for public libraries at all levels, especially those serving ethnically diverse populations and wishing to increase their online reference presence.

Each tale is accompanied by a headnote, and the book closes with a selected, general bibliography. Students studying literature and language will learn much about these tales, while students in social studies and history courses will gain greater insight into the experiences and traditional beliefs of Asian Americans. The volume includes a healthy sampling of tales grouped in topical sections on origins; heroes, heroines, villains, and fools; society and conflict; and the supernatural.
The entire breadth of Asian American tradition too extensive to fit in an single volume, he selects traditions from India, the Philippines, China, Japan, and Korea as established and settled populations whose folktales have been translated into English.
