Gr 11 Up-Two well-written entries in a series that fills a long-standing gap in most collections. At least as appropriate for undergraduate university and community-college students as for serious high school students, these books deserve a far wider audience than they are likely to receive. Media Images, probably the more accessible and appealing of the two, examines the wide spectrum of information by and/or about American Indian cultures in film, television, journalism, and on the Internet, as well as high school, collegiate, and professional sports mascots. Although the focus is mainly on the familiar icons of the last 30 years, most readers will be surprised to discover the long history of Native American media stretching back to the 1800s. Less obvious in its teen appeal, Sacred Sites tackles the social and legal tensions surrounding the intersections of traditional culture, religion, property rights, and scientific research. Both authors do an excellent job of presenting their material in a clear and organized fashion, but the complexity of the issues themselves makes these books intense reading, particularly the latter. Although they may require some active promotion, these volumes could potentially rectify many persistent myths and misunderstandings for our next generation of leaders, activists, and well-informed citizens.-Sean George, Pearsontown Elementary School, Durham, NC Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
