From the Inside Flap:
"Illustrates the widely varying trends and depictions of the American Indian in films"—from the foreword by Wilcomb E. Washburn

"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

"The essays are useful, enabling readers to construct a cinematic chronology of the Hollywood Indian and to comprehend the larger cultural forces at work interpreting the Indian-white past on screen."--Choice

"Will become the standard source for reference for an important subject, not only in American contemporary popular culture, but for evolving attitudes in a new century."--Film and History

"Raises interesting issues and challenges readers to consider the complex realities of American Indian cultures and Indian/non-Indian relations that major motion pictures often fail to communicate."--American Graduate

"The essays add to the growing literature on films about American Indians, and individually, they provide interesting insights into the process of movie-making and viewing."--North Carolina Historical Review

"The essays are solid pieces that place the films in a proper historical and artistic context."--Journal of American History

“An engaging and timely update to previous critical anthologies.”—Journal of American Culture

“Rollins and O’Connor have skillfully blended a variety of thoughtful veiwpoints.”—Chronicles of Oklahoma

“A collection of quality essays, put together by two of the leading experts in this particular topic area.”—Communication Booknotes Quarterly
