Analyzes contemporary literature, historical fiction and non-fiction in young adult “books about Indians,” with a discerning eye.

 

Paulette Molin analyzes contemporary literature, historical fiction and non-fiction in young adult “books about Indians,” with a discerning eye for the portrayal of American Indian characters and the presentation of narratives, histories, cultures, and settings. In addition to her on-target analyses, she also demonstrates how reviewers in generally respected school and library journals more often than not applaud books deeply flawed by stereotypical depictions of Native peoples. American Indian Themes is an important and eminently readable book—a treasure—that has a place in every library, and in every school where history and literature are taught.
