Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Many audiobooks containing Native American stories deal with the folkways and history of the people (e.g., Wisdomkeepers: Meetings with Native American Spiritual Elders , Audio Reviews, LJ 9/1/93). This collection provides insight into contemporary life through essays by some of the most respected Native American writers. Joy Harjo and Simon Ortiz read their own as well as nine other essays from various contributors. A common thread running through the pieces is the writers' attempts to come to terms with their identities as Native Americans in relation to their communities and the Anglo culture. Lorenzo Baca provides musical accompaniment between essays. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries with strong Native American and literature collections.-- Susan Hamburger, Alderman Lib., Univ. of Virginia, Charlottesville
