Scholars associated with the journal Film & History point out that Indians in films belong to some very different tribes than any flesh- and-blood Native American, and identify the many discrepancies between historical and cultural reality and portrayals on the screen. They urge Native Americans not to believe the misrepresentation of them, and urge filmmakers to consider the Native American art of storytelling as an approach to the real history of the west. Paper edition (unseen) $24.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

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
