    1. This is a collection of short stories by Native American authors that provide insight and introspect into being Native American in today’s society. Favorite stories in this collection are THE SACRED HOOP by Paula Allen Gunn (about the Indian belief that all things are related); ALL THE COLORS IN THE SUNSET by Luci Tapahonso (about memories, our elders, and our children); THE APROXIMATE SIZE OF MY FAVORITE TUMOR by Sherman Alexie (My favorite native American author, and this story is about find [...]


    2. Purdy & Ruppert have collected an excellent volume of diverse Native American poets, storytellers and essayists. They include the Native American Renaissance leaders like McNickle, Momaday, Silko, Harjo and Alexie, and they have included younger writers too. I love that they have even included the script for "Harold of Orange" (Charlie Hill at his best). To be fair, I have one complaint; there needs to be a 2nd Edition with expanded selections.


    3. A wonderful collection of Native American Literature for the experienced reader or the beginner. I've found some favorite new authors.
