Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Experiences, 1879-2000 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The institutional life of boarding school is a common thread running through American Indian history. Here are stories of the strategies of human survival — resistance, accommodation, faith in oneself and one's heritage, the ability to learn from hard times, to create something beautiful and meaningful from scraps and fragments.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 136-138) and index.
