They all belonged to clans and each longhouse was the home of a clan. Readers will learn about the fascinating lifestyle of these hunting and farming peoples who thanked the Earth each day for its many gifts. Topics include clan and village life; how a longhouse was built; life inside the longhouse; gifts from the land; making clothes from hide; the roles of men, women, children, and elders; and games and celebrations.; ISBN: 0778704629

Babushka's Doll
 Picture
Publisher: New York 1995.
Near Fine with no dust jacket; New book with light edge wear from being on display. Aladdin Later Printing Paperback Square 4to 9" - 11"; Unpaginated pages; Natasha wasn't really naughty. She just had no patience when it came to waiting for things. She was always nagging her Babushka (grandmother) to stop what her own activities to cater to Natasha's desires. When Babushka finally finishes her chores and gets lunch on the table, Natasha notices a doll on the shelf she had never seen there before. She asks, "Is that your doll, Babushka?"

Her Babushka replies that it had been her doll when she was a little girl, but she had only played with her once. Just once. When Natasha asks to hold the doll, Babushka says Natasha may play with the doll while she goes to the store to buy groceries. But as soon as Babushka left, the little doll comes to life and begins to make demands: She wants to play.She wants Natasha to push her in the swing until Natasha is tired. And some more. Natasha takes the doll for a ride in the goat cart and the doll tells her to keep going and not to slow down. When Natasha is too tired to keep pulling and sits down to rest, the doll insists she want to eat now. So Natasha struggles to fix lunch. The doll spills the tea, throws the food around, and then demands that Natasha wash and iron her dress -- now. Natasha tries her best, and the doll complains she didn't do it right. At this point Natasha bursts into tears and says: "I'm just a little girl..I wish you were just a doll."

At this point, Babushka returns to find Natasha in tears and hears her story. Babushka says she must have just had a bad dream and puts the doll back on the shelf. And after that, we are left with the impression that Natasha did not nag her Babushka quite so much.; ISBN: 0689802552

The Bracelet

Publisher: New York 1993.
with no dust jacket; New book. Penguin Putnam Later Printing Paperback 8vo; Unpaginated pages; Imagine being in the second grade and having to leave your home and friends and school because you looked like one of America's enemies. That's what happened to Emi when the U.S. Government made Japanese American families like hers relocate to prison camps during World War II. On the day Emi was to move, with everything packed and ready to go, her best friend Laurie comes to tell her goodbye and gives her a lovely gold bracelet to take to the camp with her as a remembrance. Shortly after getting to the camp, after her family had cleaned out the old horse stall that was to be their new home, Emi discovered she had lost her bracelet -- the one thing that would help her remember her friend. As she looked for it, she learned a valuable lesson -- that friends don't have to have a tangible object to remember friends, because one carries one's friends in one's heart.
