A map showing the lodges appears at the beginning of the book, and beautiful, detailed illustrations show the exteriors, interiors, and way of life in each lodge. The straightforward layout and informative text present information in an easy-to-follow format. Homes include:
• wigwams, longhouses, tipis
• southern thatch homes and the pueblos of the Southwest
• the plankhouses of the Northwest Coast
• earth lodges, pit homes, hogans, and iglus
