"With a good ear and sharp eye, LaDuke introduces us to Native activists and records gross environmental abuse and creative resistance. By placing people in the center of industrial soup, LaDuke tells a story that has not been told before in this way." Radcliffe Quarterly
"A thoughtful, candid, in-depth account of Native resistance to environmental and cultural degradation...La Duke provides a unique understanding of Native ideas...offering a beautiful and daring vision of political, spiritual...transformation." Midwest Book Review
"A brilliant, gripping narrative... I urge that everyone read [All Our Relations]... which describes the ravages of corporations and government activity on the reservations for our first natives. This is a beautifully written book... As Winona LaDuke describes, in moving and often beautiful prose, [these] misdeeds are not distant history but are ongoing degradation of the cherished land of Native Americans." Ralph Nadar
