In Briefcase Warriors, a collection of six fast-paced, thought-provoking plays, E. Donald Two-Rivers presents an intricate and multifaceted view of contemporary American Indian urban life. Alternately sad, humorous, or discomfiting, these plays range from one-act vignettes accessible to young adults to extended portrayals of the seedier side of urban existence. Fast-talking and hard-living, the characters depicted by Two-Rivers struggle to survive the sometimes hostile environs of a society whose members think of them as a vanishing race.

The plays included are: Winter Summit or the Bang-Bang Incident; Forked Tongues; Chili Corn; Coyote Sits in Judgment; Shattered Dream; and Old Indian Trick (An Old Urban Indian Story as Told by an Old Urban Indian Who May Have Lied).
