American Indian StoriesBook - 2008
Part autobiographical and part folkloric, these essays and stories by the Lakota Zitkala-Sa, or "Red Bird"-the pen name of Native American writer and activist GERTRUDE SIMMONS BONNIN (1876-1938)-are renowned for being among the first works of contemporary Native American history, culture, and experience to come direct from a Native American, unedited and uninfluenced by outsiders. This 1921 collection-some of which originally appeared in magazines including The Atlantic Monthly and Harper's-includes: - "The School Days of an Indian Girl" - "An Indian Teacher Among Indians" - "The Great Spirit" - "The Soft-Hearted Sioux" - "A Warrior's Daughter" - "A Dream of Her Grandfather" - "The Widespread Enigma of Blue-Star Woman" - and more.
