Overview


Poetry. Fiction. Native American Studies. By bringing together the voices of Native American women writers across time, regions, and tribes, this collection makes visible a dynamic tradition of women's wisdom and storytelling. From early legends to present-day fiction and poetry, this tradition emphasizes women's spiritual connection to the natural world and their contributions to tribal and familial community. Central to women's strength is the role of animal figures—Coyote, Owl, Beaver and Bear—who act as guides, helpers, and personal totems, appearing unexpectedly in the modern urban landscape as well as being a constant presence in nature.

The work of more than forty authors appears in this volume, representing tribes and regions extending over most of the U.S. and parts of Canada. Among the authors included are Louise Erdrich, Joy Harjo, Leslie Marmon Silko, Paula Gunn Allen, Linda Hogan and Beth Brant, along with writers whose work appears here for the first time.

"THROUGH THE EYE OF THE DEER is far more than a wonderful book to read: it is a guidebook to life in the multiple world we really live in. It tells us of the many places the path of the sacred takes us, how to act when we get there, the dangers we will encounter, and how to get home."—Paula Gunn Allen
