Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Coming to Stay is the memoir of Mary Dodds Schlick, who in 1950 moved from the Midwest to the Colville Indian Reservation in north central Washington with her husband Bud, a forester for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. For over fifty years, she has maintained a close connection with the Native people of the Columbia River Plateau as a neighbor, journalist, teacher, and master basket maker on the Colville, Warm Springs, and Yakama reservations. These stories take place against a backdrop of change - from the uncertainty caused by federal efforts to terminate reservations in the 1950s through the growth of tribal self-determination that began in the 1970s. Schlick tells us about community and family, celebration and loss, and how she came to stay in the place she now calls home.

Mary Dodds Schlick is the author of Columbia River Basketry: Gift of the Ancestors, Gift of the Earth. A master artist in the Oregon Traditional Arts Program, she received an Oregon Governor's Arts Award in 1998.

Book News Annotation:

Schlick, a Caucasian native of Iowa, has spent her entire adult life close to the Native people of the American Northwest; her children were raised on the Warm Springs, Yakima, and Colville reservations. In this memoir she tells the stories of her logging family and the families they have lived among since the 1950s against a backdrop of political change. Schlick discusses her early experiences as a young bride on the reservation, her education in basket weaving and work as a journalist and teacher, the complicated relationship between reservations and the law, and the reasons she and her husband have come to call the Columbia Plateau home.
