    One thought on “The Remembered Earth: An Anthology of Contemporary Native America Literature”

    1. Great collection of "modern" (1979) Native American writings. From poetry, short stories, essays, and novels-in-progress. It's a great place to start when learning about Native American literature or before reading anything from a Native American author.
