American Indian Prose and Poetry. An Anthology.
Astrov, Margot, Ed.
In this anthology of translations of American Indian prose and poetry, it is pointed out that differences in styles and mental attitudes of various tribes are reflected through self-expression. In keeping with this, the compilation is organized according to geographical regions in North and South America, including Mexico and Central America. Regions and the number of entries from each are as follows: 55 from the Northern Woodlands, the Basin Area, and the Great Plains; 3 from the Southeast; 20 from southwestern deserts; 14 from the pueblos in New Mexico and Arizona; 10 from California; 13 from the Northwest; 7 from the Far North; 9 from Mexico; 4 from Central America; and 7 from Peru. Included in the document are 14 pages of bibliography, 5 pages of index, and 315 titles of other books available by the same publisher, with a price listing for each book. (EL)
