Native Americans in Books from the Past

  • Author(s): Barclay, Donald A.
  • et al.

Examines a selected set of pre-1960 illustrated children's books about Native Americans. The author concludes, "Taking everything into account, are all these books perfectly free from stereotypes and absolutely free from racism? No. But many of the books are good—surprisingly good to those who have been trained to expect only the worst from the past—and still worth reading."
