Louise Erdrich
Leslie Marmon Silko
Vickie L. Sears
Mary TallMountain
Anna Lee Walters
LeAnne Howe
Linda Hogan
Misha Gallagher
And many others.

"Native American women rank high among modern writers.... Now with this fine collection of stories, Paula Gunn Allen gives us a much needed context for their work.... Every story in the book, which covers nearly a century of tradition, is interesting, written with intelligent passion: several are real treasures.... Underlying these narratives, conventional as some of them appear, is a very different idea of the function of art than the Euro-American one. The difference is exhilarating."--The New York Times Book Review
