"It is the most complete compilation of Native writing that I've seen. It's more than a magazine or journal, but a whole book. To describe it as an anthology is not enough; it's a book of Indian writing that is the most complete example of what is going on presently. . . this is what's possible when it's no longer an abstract idea/concept/notion but is something concrete and real as phati'tude." - Simon Ortiz, Acoma Pueblo, Poet/Author/Teacher I am convinced that it will be enthusiastically received. It has the potential to be used as an anthology in classrooms and to be useful for years to come . . . . Quite simply, this is a terrific collection!" - Joseph Bruchac, Abenaki, Poet/Writer/Storyteller Winner of the 2001 Native Writer's Circle of the America Award for Editing a Native American Compilation.
