Native Web is buzzing about "Like A Hurricane" a history of Native activism that is apparently amazingly good. I should have my copy (Amazon.com is da bomb--things arrive in two days, usually) by Friday!
Also--have you already read "The Grass Dancer," by Susan Powers, and the immortal, impossible, incredible, "Love Medicine," by Louise Edrich? As good as they get...And Alfredo Vea's "La Maravilla" is also amazing--has a Yaqui family at it's "core," and if he can't move you, no one can. The "wisdom" of that book stunned the world, and blew me away with it!
