Scholastic Encyclopedia of the American Indian

American studies of a more specialized nature are the subjects of two books from Scholastic. The Scholastic Encyclopedia of the North American Indian by James Ciment with Ronald LaFrance covers 149 tribal and regional groups with more than 500 sepia-toned illustrations, numerous sidebars, a timeline, maps, a list of museums and cultural centers, a reading list and a glossary. The red-and-brown two-color design, however, looks drab. ($17.95 224p ages 9-up ISBN 0-590-22790-4; Aug.)
