Poetry. Fiction. Native American Studies. This anthology of native Alaskan writers helps map the rich and unique identity of the native Alaskan people. Included in the book are bios of the selected writers and bibliographies of their books. The authors include Diane E. Benson, Fred Bigjim, Robert H. Davis, Mary Lockwood, Yvone Mozee, Glen Simson, and Mary TallMountain. From different perspectives, each captures the environment of Alaska, their own relationship to that land, and the social particulars of an underappreciated community.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A collection of poetry, essays, plays, and short stories by 23 native Alaskan writers. The styles of these artists are as varied as the languages and cultures they identify with under the rubric "Alaskan Native." Often the traditional "storytelling" forms are used with new variations in order to address modern problems. The need to preserve a distinct cultural heritage and the desire to develop personal and moral values are major themes in this distinctive anthology. Each entry contains a biographical sketch of the writer and a photograph. Highly recommended. ~--Jane Jurgens"
