OHITIKA WOMAN by Mary Brave Bird
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR

"Without the intrinsic excitement of the first installment, with its firsthand history of AIM and the siege at Wounded Knee; still, a forceful presentation of Native American life today. (Eight pages of b&w photographs—not seen)"

TALES FROM THE AMERICAN FRONTIER by Richard Erdoes
NON-FICTION
Released: Sept. 20, 1991

"Meant to be a definitive collection but more often a derivative effort, unable to claim consistently either authenticity or a compelling originality. (B&w illustrations—not seen.)"
Homespun yarns and tall tales ``edited, told, and retold'' by Erdoes (co-editor, American Indian Myths and Legends, 1984, etc.) in a problematic compilation of the legends that arose from the taming of the American wilderness. Read full book review >
