Overview

Originally published in 1978, The Worlds between Two Rivers intentionally reflected a wide spectrum of views on Native Americans in Iowa: those of Native Americans themselves and of Euro-Americans, those of laypeople, and those of professional educators, social scientists, and humanists.  Now, more than twenty years later, this expanded edition reflects the far-reaching and complicated changes for American Indians in this region.
Two new essays—one discussing the issues surrounding the reburial of disinterred American Indian skeletal remains and the repatriation of bones and cultural objects, the other dealing with the native people from whom the state of Iowa took its name—not only express the continuing American Indian presence in Iowa but also extend the bridge for non-Indian people to better understand those Iowans who represent the state's first nations.

AIQ
This collection of essays illustrates the riches obtainable from combining the ideas and experiences of academics, social service people, and native Americans themselves. The editors have done a nice job in selecting and introducing the essays.
Western American Literature
Those concerned with Native American education will find the entire book useful, especially the chapters by Owana McLester-GreenÞeld, Adeline Wanatee, Michael Husband and Gary Koerselman, Reuben Snake and Donald Graham. The book is especially good in its treatment of the Mesquakie.
