Joseph Bruchac shares the Seasons of the Circle: A Native American Year, illus. by Robert Goetzl, from January (""Maliseet hunters follow/ the tracks of the moose/ through crusted snow"") to December, during which ""a Lakota elder/ tells stories of when earth was young."" A pronunciation guide to tribal names and a map of their regions conclude the volume.
