"Hollywood's representation of Indians is a subject which up till now has generated a lot more heat than light. This welcome new collection of essays covers a lot of ground . . . including a valuable piece on Michael Mann's The Last of the Mohicans and earlier versions of Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales," a surprisingly and convincingly sympathetic essay on Dances with Wolves, and an informative account of Pocahontas."—Edward Buscombe
