The Native American in Long Fiction: An Annotated Bibliography : Supplement, 1995-2002
A companion guide to the authors' 1996 work, The Native American in Long Fiction: An Annotated Bibliography, this supplement is a compilation of all identifiable novel-length fictional works by and about Native Americans published primarily between the years 1995 and 2002. Recently more Native Americans are writing their own stories and telling their contemporary experiences, and the novels included in this supplement reflect that shift. It identifies Native American authors who have written long fiction on themes relevant to their history, social conditions, culture, and people, and includes all works by non-Native American authors that either have Native Americans as central characters or Native American issues as central themes. Though it concentrates on fictional works published about native people in the United States and Alaska, it also includes many works that focus on tribes from other areas of North America, such as Canada, and includes all literary genres: mysteries, historical fiction, westerns, romances, and contemporary fiction. This is an imperative addition to the field that raises the awareness of Native American issues in either an historical context, a cultural or social context, or in contemporary society. For use by librarians and library collection development staff, teachers, educators and faculty in high schools and colleges, and by the general public eager to locate and identify novels on Native American themes. Includes short critical annotations, indexes by tribal affiliation, geographical location, time period, historical persons and events, a list of works not included, and a Best Books list of the authors' personal favorites.
