Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit: Essays on Native American Life Today by Leslie Marmon Silko

Bold and impassioned, sharp and defiant, Leslie Marmon Silko's essays evoke the spirit and voice
of Native Americans. Whether she is exploring the vital importance literature and language play
in Native American heritage, illuminating the inseparability of the land and the Native American
people, enlivening the ways and wisdom of the old-time people, or exploding in outrage over the
government's long-standing, racist treatment of Native Americans, Silko does so with eloquence
and power, born from her profound devotion to all that is Native American.


Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit is written with the fire of necessity. Silko's
call to be heard is unmistakable; there are stories to remember, injustices to redress, ways of
life to preserve. It is a work of major importance, filled with indispensable truths--a work by
an author with an original voice and a unique access to both worlds.
