FROM THE PUBLISHER - These twenty-six selections, all but three of which were written by American Indians, evoke a tragic and poignant history. Through narratives, autobiography, poems, stories and essays, these contributors tell of their joys, suffering and beliefs before and after their encounter with white man. This stirring and important collection is divided into four sections: Growing Up Indian, The Indian Way of Life, Encountering the White Man, and The Indian in the Twentieth Century. The sections are preceded by introductions, and brief essays provide biographical background for each contributor and place the selection in historical perspective. Thus, in Growing Up Indian, N. Scott Momaday, a Kiowa and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, describes in a deeply moving fashion an Indianís first bear-hunting experience, and Black Elk, in a humorous vein, tells of a young Oglala Siouxís courtship of a beautiful woman. In The Indian Way of Life, Charles A. Eastman, a Sioux who became a physician, Wilfred Pelletier, an Odawa, Vine Deloria, Jr., author of Custer Died for Your Sins, and Smohalla, a Nez Percé, discuss the Indiansí uniquely humanistic values. The third section includes accounts by Dee Brown, Chief William Red Fox and John Stands in Timber, who tells the story of what happened at Custerís last stand. In the last section, we meet the Indian in the twentieth century: his life on the reservation and in the city and his growing militancy. Bookseller Inventory # 25609
