Telling the Stories

Essays on American Indian Literatures and Cultures


Elizabeth Hoffman Nelson and Malcolm A Nelson

Telling the Stories brings together thirteen important statements on major issues of American Indian identities and literatures. Some of the authors tell their stories and those of their people; others give scholarly attention to the most important contemporary Indian authors, such as Sherman Alexie, Louise Erdrich, Leslie Marmon Silko, and James Welch. Thus the book replicates the dynamic process of the ever-changing stories of the American Indian peoples.
