These essays provide a historical and critical view of Native American literary materials from early myths and legends to contemporary novels and short stories. The essays are organized in three groups, beginning with an introduction placing them within the broad context of extant scholarship. The first section on historical and methodological perspectives deals with the mythology and folk tales of North American Indians, the structure of Zuni myth, the Clackamas Chinook myths, Canadian Cree narratives, and Chamula (Mexican) speech and performance. The section on traditional literature covers creation tales, trickster tales, and Eskimo poetry. The section on literature in English focuses on contemporary fiction--N.S. Momaday's House Made of Dawn, J. Welch's Winter in the Blood, and L. Silko's Ceremony. ISBN 0-8161-8687-1: $32.50
