Along with the traditional, primarily oral, literature of tales, songs, memoirs, and oratory, this revised anthology offers a large selection of poetry and fiction by American Indian women, including an excerpt from Louise Erdrich's Love Medicine and poetry by Paula Gunn Allen, Rayna Green, Joy Harjo, nila northSun, and others. There is also a rich array of works by contemporary Indian men from different regions, such as N. Scott Momaday, James Welch, Gerald Vizenor, and Maurice Kenny.
