Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

From Aztec to Zuni, here are portraits of the daily lives of the First Nations people who lived and still live on the continent of North America; the great floating island the Northeastern woodland tribes called Turtle Island. Songs, chants and legends from the tip of southern Mexico to Alaska and Arctic Canada are included. Covering a time span of a thousand years, the book includes tribes now decimated or who are a nearly forgotten and rarely mentioned part of history.This book of word-sketches paints a picture of their world: at times harsh and cruel, at other times spiritual and filled with beauty. These word-sketches convey the humanness of the original inhabitants of Turtle Island, the Native American Indians; paints them as neither noble nor savage, but simply as people who learned to live with nature's challenges and hardships and to endure. To read these portraits of tribes and individuals, their land and customs, their needs, both physical and spiritual, is to understand the magnificent heritage that is the gift to the world from Native American Indian people.
