A fascinating study of literature created by Native America authors about the boarding school (residential school) experience. Using student writings from boarding school newspapers, student essays, and autobiographies as well as contemporary plays, novels, and poetry, the author examines the manner in which these American Indian students redefined their identity through these writings. In chapters 3 and 4, the author examines texts by Francis La Flesche, Zitkala-Sa, and Charles Eastman. Chapter 5 discusses the works of contemporary authors Luci Tapahonso, N. Scott Momaday, and Hanay Geiogamah. Amelia V. Katanski is Assistant Professor of English at Kalamazoo College in Michigan.
