Summary
"The 1970s and 1980s have witnessed a flowering of Native American literature. This collection of current works shows the astonishing variety of contemporary Indian fiction. Some of these pieces are deeply personal and direct; some are difficult and experimental. Several demonstrate the rich and often overlooked humor so pervasive in American Indian culture. Together, these excerpts present fascinating variations on the great themes of both Indian mythology and mainstream American literature. Some of the contributors are distinguished prize winners; some are better known as poets, critics, or scholars. They represent many tribes and many parts of the country"--Back cover
