recommend some books

so i was in abarnes & noble looking for something to read and i came across the "native american section"... which was like 2 shelves.
and i was really disappointed at the new age crap that was mixed into that section.
anyway.... i'm still looking for something good to read.

I would recommend:

Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, by Carl Waldman.

I used this book like a bible when I worked as a researcher.

It gives phonetic and different spellings for tribal names. The historical information is pretty good. So is the current information about contemporary issues and leaders. In several cases it tells what language family a tribe belongs to and what other tribes are similar or affiliated.

Good stuff!

"Prison Writings" by Leonard Peltier, or "In the Spirit of Crazy Horse" If your looking for something Fictional I suggest anything by Sherman Alexie, or Louise Erdrich, or N. Scott Momaday who writes more nonfiction I think, but still, all excellent authors.

"Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee" by Dee Brown is very good.
"The Wisdom of the Native Americans" has some great speeches of Chief Red Jacket, Chief Joseph, and Chief Seattle and other writings.
"American Indian Myths and Legends" was very interesting, has different tribes.
"Other Council Fires Were Here Before Ours" by Jamie Sams & Twylah Nitsch
Just a few I've read, enjoy! I have also been to a Books-a-Million and they only have a few shelves also.

yeah...the whole two shelves on natives...pretty sick n wrong I tell you. Anyways, I think that the books by Carlos Casteneda are very neato. They are life-changing books for realz. Also, a book called From the Heart edited by Amy Miller (I think that is her name) is definitely a good book that tells Native history using quotes and speeches made by Native people. It gives a unique perspective on things. Also, American Indian Myths and Legends is really good too. I don't care for the little intros and summaries by Richard Erdoes b/c of his little white man point of view, but the stories are good. hmm...I'm not too big of a fan of fiction these days but when I was, I liked sherman alexie's lone ranger and tonto fistfight in heaven. oooh and I definitely liked Talking Leaves, which is an anthology of Native stories. My favorite was The Old Marriage by Debra Earling b/c it took place on the best rez in the whole world (my rez). I also liked Deer Woman...that story was tha shiznit. anyways, I could go on and on bout books to read in any genre b/c i'm a nerd like that...so I'll just stop here w/ the recommendations. Peace.

If murder is your thing, check out Sherman Alexis' "Indian Killers."

yeah, I saw his name mentioned on another thread so I'm going to try and find some of his books. The way others were talking "Reservation Blues" and "Indian Killer" are recommended. Thanks

yeah i read the Casteneda books years ago.... and although they aren't factual there a a few good points in them to think about.... kinda the same thing with the super popular book that's out now "the peaceful warrior" by dan millman.... yeah, there's some good points to think about... even though they try to pass it off as a true story.

but yeah thanks for the input, i'll look up the other titles as well.

One that I enjoyed......"Neither wolf nor dog" On forgotten roads with an Indian Elder
by Kent Nerburn

It's a good read with some great humor..........

oh and another one.

counting coup by larry colton was alright. there was another book...about su ann big crow but i can't member what it was called. the autobiography by russell means was pretty good. lakota woman was good. i'm really n2 nonfiction stuff. I like some native stuff too but...gosh it's always so dang sad, angry, serious or whatever so I kinda don't read a lot of it either. i like contemporary stories too. some of the fiction I liked was written by Louise Erdrich and definitely Perma Red by Debra Earling. those ladies know how to tell a goot story. someday, I'ma write some books and I'm going to tell my sob story about how hard it is to be a Native in post-colonial America but i'm going to at least make it funny...GEEZ! lol. look out for it at a bookstore near you in 2012. yeez.

American Gods

American Gods by: Neil Gaiman. A superb read, I couldn't put it down. Gaiman is a contemporary fantasy genius. He also wrote a whole $hit-ton of DC Vertigo titles, including the world's renowned graphic novel series SANDMAN.


It's pretty awesome on audio too. Please give it a read, it goes fast, no real huge words and it's set in mostly rural Wisconsin, dig that huh? And it's just a killer killer novel. Hands down ya'll.



Peace and Love
OD

Yes Carlos and I have been friends for the last 15 years. I'm on the second to the last book in the original series or what ever you want to call them. Good stuff that Carlos Castaneds, although the events leading up to and surrounding his death in 1998. But one hell of a rouge scholar my friends. I recommend his earlier books, well the first five or 7, after that especially around Tensegrity and the Art of Dreaming it gets way to new agey and crap.

My all-time favorite is The Grass Dancer by Susan Powers. I have read that book about 10 times it's so good. I even had my upward bound students read parts of it and they hated to read but they loved it too! Another fave is Grand Avenue and Sherman Alexie's Ten Little Indians. A good nonfiction is The Osage Indian Murders. I love Louise Erdrich's Love Medicine. I could also go on for days about Native Literature. I'm such a book worm.
