Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Crow vision quests atop the craggy, fog-enshrouded Crazy Mountains; the Hopi spirits' Katsina Bluffs rehearsal site for making rain; the oil-rich, many-rivered "Rocky Mountain Front," central to Blackfeet history and culture; ancient Pueblo petroglyphs strewn across mountains in New Mexico these landscapes are among many featured in Sacred Lands of Indian America, edited by Jake Page and with 84 color photographs by David Muench, and 18 maps. Though most of the photography and text focuses on the Southwest, nexus of much Native culture and activism, the book turns the lens on other states, including Minnesota, Washington, Georgia, California and Montana. With lively writing by Paula Gunn Allen, Rennard Strickland, Charles E. Little, the editor and others, this elegant, smart case for ecologically and culturally responsible practices ennobles the conservationist cause. 18 maps. (Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Edited by prolific author Page (Mythology of Native North America), this unique collaboration between Natives and nonNatives is intended to draw attention to several threatened sites considered sacred to Native Americans. Loosely organized by the affected tribe(s), entries on the 18 sites include a locator map, spectacular color photos by nature photographer Muench (Plateau Light), and text explaining the area's history and religious significance. Also included are short essays by such contributors as Laguna-Sioux poet Paula Gunn Allen, Cherokee-Osage legal scholar Rennard Strickland, and James Park Morton, former dean of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. A postscript lists some of the legal hurdles involved in protecting these sites and advice for readers who wish to help, and an annotated bibliography and list a of concerned organizations round out this beautiful call to arms. Recommended for public and Native American collections. Tim Markus, Evergreen State Coll. Lib., Olympia, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
