Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Dreams and Thunder: Stories, Poems and the Sun Dance Opera by Zitkala-Sa (Gertrude Simmons Bonnin) is a collection of writings by one of the most prominent Native American activists and writers of the 20th century. The stories collected here are retellings of Sioux myths. In "The Sun Dance Opera," a performance of the sacred Sun Dance is inserted into the story of a love triangle involving a Sioux woman and her two suitors, one good and one evil. Editor P. Jane Hafen supplies much helpful autobiographical background.

Review

"Hafen has done a great service to the study of American Indian literature by collecting in one book several published and unpublished pieces.... A wonderful and enlightening collection."

"Hafen has done a great service to the study of American Indian literature by collecting in one book several published and unpublished pieces. . . . A wonderful and enlightening collection."--"Choice,"

"This new collection of previously unpublished writing by Zitkala-Sa (Gertrude Bonnin) marks a milestone in the scholarship of this crucial figure in Native literary and intellectual history. Meticulously researched, editor P. Jane Hafen's compilation advances our understanding of this Yankton Sioux writer, activist, and artist, about whom little has been documented. . . . This is an indispensable addition to American Indian Studies in general and to Yankton Sioux literary history in particular."--"Great Plains Quarterly,"
