From the front of the book: "The literature of and about the American Indian: myths, tales, poetry, oratory, and autobiography from the Iroquois, Cherokee, Winnebago, Sioux, and many other tribes; white accounts of Indian life from Bernal Diaz to Parkman, and contemporary reassessments by such writers as Luther Standing Bear, N. Scott Momaday, Vine Deloria, Jr., Thomas Berger, and Gary Snyder. "

This is an excellent and entertaining resource. (paperback, not hardback.)

The Portable North American Indian Reader compiles myths, tales, poetry and oratory from the Iroquois, Cherokee, Winnebago, Sioux, Blackfeet, Hopi and many other tribes. In addition, Frederick Turner includes a number of "culture contact" selections--explorer's accounts, captives' narratives, and Indian autobiographies--as well as a section on the conflicting popular images of the Indian in white literature and, finally, contemporary reassessments by such writers as Luther Standing Bear, N. Scott Momaday, Vine Deloria, Jr. James Welch, Simon Ortiz, and Gary Snyder.
