  • Crooked River
    Crooked River
    Author:  Shelley Pearsall

    From the Author:  
    "The year is 1812. A white trapper is murdered. And a young Chippewa stands accused.

    Captured and shackled in leg irons and chains, Indian John is imprisoned in a settler's loft to await his trial. All the while, thirteen-year-old Rebecca Carver sleeps and cooks and cleans below, terrified by the captive Indian in her own home.

    As the trial approaches, the Chippewa man struggles to make sense of the white man's court. In a world of crude frontier justice, where evidence is often overlooked in favor of vengeance, his young lawyer faces the wrath of the settlers who are hungry to see the Indian hanged for murder. And Rebecca must decide for herself what--and who--is right. At stake is a life.

    Told in the alternating voices of Indian John and Rebecca Carver, Crooked River offers a probing look at prejudice, early American justice, and the true meaning of courage. An author's note and bibliography provide additional historical details for readers."

  • Death Along The Spirit Road
    Death Along The Spirit Road by C.M. Wendelboe
    Author:  C.M. Wendelboe
    From the Author:

    "Eighteen years ago, FBI agent Manny Tanno thought he was leaving the impoverished Pine Ridge Reservation for good. Now a case forces him to return, digging up memories of his proud Sioux ancestry—and some family he'd rather forget.

    The body of local Native land developer Jason Red Cloud is found on the site for his new resort near Pine Ridge Village. A war club is lodged in his skull, and there are clues to suggest a ritual may have been performed at the crime scene. Agent Tanno's boss orders his to return to the reservation, his former home, and solve the murder in two weeks—or he can kiss his job good-bye.

    Manny arrives in Pine Ridge to find that some things haven't changed since he left. His former rival, now in charge of the tribal police, is just as bitter as ever, and he has no intention of making Manny's life easy. And the spirit of Red Cloud haunting Manny's dreams is not much help either. Now Manny is on his own in hunting down a cold-blooded killer—and one misstep could send him down the spirit road as well."

  • Feathering Custer
    Feathering Custer
    From The University of Nebraska Press:
    "The noted Nez Perce fiction writer and critic William S. Penn turns his wry and penetrating gaze on the state of modern Native life and literature and considers how modern scholarship has affected the way Natives and others see themselves and their world.  The result is a uniquely frank, witty, and unsettling critique of contemporary theory and its ability to come to terms with the real lives and literatures of Natives in North America."
