Top Customer Reviews
This book begins with the colorful story of how civilization came to be Indian style. The animated journey of not quite human humans as they travel through four worlds before settling down in the fith glittering world.
The books then proceeds to a journey in which the narrator starts at home on the reservation and rebeliously travels the country. From living on the streets to completing a MFA from Cornell, the narrator eventually completes the physical and metaphoric inner journey back home.
This book was not as mystic and symbolicially laden as its contemporary American Indian Literature, but it does not take away from the feelings one eventually shares with the narrator.
The creation story at the begining is an added treat!
