Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Step into Indian Country. Enter the dark welter of troubled history throughout the Americas, where the heritage of violence meets the ferocity of intent.

Features brand-new stories by: Mistina Bates, Jean Rae Baxter, Lawrence Block, Joseph Bruchac, David Cole, Reed Farrel Coleman, O'Neil De Noux, A.A. Hedge Coke, Gerard Houarner, Liz Martínez, R. Narvaez, Kimberly Roppolo, Leonard Schonberg, and Melissa Yi.

Sarah Cortez, a law enforcement officer, is the award-winning author of the poetry collection How to Undress a Cop. She brings her heritage as a Tejana with Mexican, French, Comanche, and Spanish blood to the written page.

Liz Martínez’s stories have appeared in Manhattan Noir, Queens Noir, and Cop Tales 2000. She is a member of Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers, and she lives in New York.

Review:

"Written by both Native American and non-Native authors, the 14 stories in this worthy volume in Akashic's noir series range geographically from northern Canada to Puerto Rico and from New York's Adirondacks to Los Angeles. One of the more impressive entries is Melissa Yi's moving 'Indian Time,' about Mohawk Fred Redish's painful attempts to visit his young sons under the care of his white mother-in-law. 'JaneJohnDoe.com,' David Cole's story of a woman forced to forge a new identity for a drug lord or see her family slain, works perfectly. Leonard Schonberg's 'Lame Elk,' about an alcoholic's last chance to reform, is a noir gem. Co-editor Martnez's poignant 'Prowling Wolves' recounts the sad fate of Iwo Jima flag-raiser Ira Hayes. Other contributors include Lawrence Block, Jean Rae Baxter, Reed Farrel Coleman, and Gerard Houarner. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The sharpest, most stylized and ambitious anthology of Native American literature ever published.
