By using verse form and visual clues indicating pauses, intonations, and gestures, anthropologist Rodney Frey permits readers to hear the oral literature of narrators from the Coeur d’Alene, Crow, Klikitat, Kootenai, Nez Perce, Sanpoil, and Wasco people today in Washington, northern Idaho, and Montana. He places each of the twenty-three narratives in its larger cultural, literary, and expressive context, making this anthology an important resource both for American Indian people and for non-Native scholars and general readers. A glossary and a lesson-plan appendix facilitate the book’s use in both secondary and college-level courses.

Review:

This collection of oral stories from the Inland Northwest tribes is unusual: it represents an anthropologist's attention to presenting different tribal perspectives, and uses verse and visual clues to help preserve oral traditions in written word translations. College-level students familiar with Native literature will be the likely audience for this unusual effort. -- Midwest Book Review
