I think it depends on how you define "beginner". I consider myself a beginner (sometimes this list goes way over my head), but I have no trouble with Mithun's _Languages of Native North America_. I was surprised how accessible it was, actually. There is a lot of lingustic vocab, but I think most of it is pretty basic. (Thank you for your suggestions!) -- Kate Sherwood
