Editorial Reviews

World Literature Today

“An important addition to the library of Native American autobiography and a valuable contribution to literary scholarship.”—World Literature Today
Western Historical Quarterly

“Like the cultures from which its many contributors come, this is a protean book—diverse, rich, and revealing at every turn. . . . For those who have yet to come into the literature of contemporary Native American writers, these inclusions offer a taste of what greater richness lies beyond.”—Western Historical Quarterly
Bloomsbury Review

“Rings with an urgency and honesty that promises to go far in setting the record straight about Native American experience in non-Indian dominated America.”—Bloomsbury Review
Washington Post Book World

“I do not know of any book quite like this one. Not only does it gather eighteen eloquent autobiographical essays in one place—a rarity in itself—but they are the life stories of some very significant Native American writers. The combination is unique. . . . On many levels, then, this is a book both enlightening and necessary.”—Washington Post Book World
