Mining People mine for coal, oil, minerals, and metals. These are used for energy and as raw products to make things. In various parts of North America there are huge areas rich in one or more of these natural resources. Gillette, in Wyoming, is the coal-mining capital of the USA. Nearby is the small community of Moorcroft. The community developed from an old wild west cattle-ranching center and is now largely based on oil and coal-mining. About 900 people live in the small town.

A series that explores a range of bullying behaviors at the forefront of parental, educational and societal concern, and encourages kids to take a stand against bullying of all kinds. Simultaneous. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Three timely, useful, and informative titles. A one-page scenario unique to a specific type of bullying serves as an example to enlighten readers on the experience of being a target. This scenario further helps to introduce the focus of the book, followed by an explanation and definition of the type of bullying. Each chapter provides helpful advice and recommendations for ways of handling an attack. Other topics examined include the roles and impact of people present during an act of bullying, where an incident occurs, and parents and siblings as bullies. They all help readers to better understand and grasp the trauma experienced by targets. Other chapters address the fear of future attacks and the impact of these incidents on school attendance. A list of personality characteristics of bullies, physical characteristics and tendencies of those often targeted by bullies, and recommendations for actions to take when witnessing an act of bullying or being a victim help readers become empowered. Material is to the point and easy to understand. A short quiz at the conclusion of each book, "Did You Know?" text boxes with additional facts and statistics, "Think About It!" sections, an appealing layout with color photos and computer-enhanced and altered graphics, accompanied by first-person accounts, create accessible and helpful resources.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NEα(c) Copyright 2013.

Explores the roles and relationships of spirits in Native American myths and retells some ancient myths, describing how the people used them to interpret their world. From School Library Journal: Gr 5-7-This is an attractive and well-designed series. Unfortunately the strict format severely limits its function. Each book presents the same topics in exactly the same way. The self-contained spreads do not carry information over a page turn, which creates an abrupt, stilted style. Readers are given ruthlessly summarized versions of the myths and legends that neither inform nor inspire, and the explanations are likewise loose or poorly connected due to the space limitations. Native American Myths is the most egregious title, since it attempts to present the disparate mythologies of thousands of different tribes, a scope that is impossible to fulfill in a substantial way. In each volume, page seven includes a map regardless of whether or not it provides meaningful engagement with the text. In Mesoamerican Myths, it defines the lands and "sites" of the three main cultures addressed in the book: Olmec, Maya, and Aztec. No definition or explanation is given as to what these sites mean or why they occur outside a given culture's territory. In Native American Myths, it shows the main geographical regions of North America and indicates that, "Native peoples and tribes are usually referred to by region." However, the regional groups described in the text do not correspond with the legend on the map. Because it deals with a single culture, Norse Myths fares the best, but even so would be of little use to readers unless they were already familiar with the literature. Readers will gain little understanding of these myths here.-Anna Haase Krueger, Ramsey County Library, White Bear Lake, MNα(c) Copyright 2013.
