Edited by prolific author Page (Mythology of Native North America), this unique collaboration between Natives and nonNatives is intended to draw attention to several threatened sites considered sacred to Native Americans. Loosely organized by the affected tribe(s), entries on the 18 sites include a locator map, spectacular color photos by nature photographer Muench (Plateau Light), and text explaining the area's history and religious significance. Also included are short essays by such contributors as Laguna-Sioux poet Paula Gunn Allen, Cherokee-Osage legal scholar Rennard Strickland, and James Park Morton, former dean of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. A postscript lists some of the legal hurdles involved in protecting these sites and advice for readers who wish to help, and an annotated bibliography and list a of concerned organizations round out this beautiful call to arms. Recommended for public and Native American collections. Tim Markus, Evergreen State Coll. Lib., Olympia, WA
