Alison Owings - Indian Voices

Introduced by Betty Goerke
In the vast literature about Native Americans, there is no book like Indian Voices ($21.95). In her signature oral history style, Alison Owings takes readers on a fresh journey across America, to meet those Americans whose ancestors once had the continent to themselves, and whose lives as contemporary Americans are tied in more ways than we might realize to those of non-Natives.  

Through intimate interviews, many also express their thoughts about the sometimes staggeringly ignorant, if often well-meaning, non-Natives they encounter—some who do not realize Native Americans speak English, have cell phones, use the Internet, and might attend both powwows and power lunches. Indian Voices, an inspiring and important contribution to the literature about the original Americans, will make every reader rethink the past—and present—of the United States.   

Alison Owings is the author of Frauen: German Women Recall the Third Reich, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year (Rutgers University Press) and Hey, Waitress! The USA from the Other Side of the Tray.
