Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Topics include the impact of new technologies on instruction, the relationship of the library and information school to other teaching departments on a campus, education for informational professionals at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the future of research in the information sector. Reprint (in cloth) of the 1985 (U. of New Mexico Pr.) paperback memoir of a Cherokee boyhood in the 1930s, by the man who later went on to write the Josey Wales novels. Annotation c.

Library Journal
Proclaimed the American Booksellers Association Book of the Year in 1991, this sweet account of a boy being raised by Cherokee grandparents was exposed as false later that year. The author’s real name was Asa Earl Carter; he had no Native American ancestors, and many of the cultural references were inaccurate. Though most libraries have moved the book to fiction, it is still popular with readers seeking inspirational titles. (LJ11/15/76)
