Synopsis

Indians, Environment, and Identity on the Borders of American Literature From Faulkner and Morrison to Walker and Silko by Lindsey Claire Smith

The authors discussed in this book, including James Fenimore Cooper, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and Leslie Marmon Silko, place this cross-cultural contact in nature, not only collapsing cultural and racial boundaries, but also complicating divisions between 'wilderness' and 'civilization.'

Reviews

Smith s work is important as a new way to view Native American literature through the prism of earlier American literature. Smith s tactic of looking at very different authors from a single perspective is a novel approach and challenges much traditional scholarship. The research is timely and challenging. - Gretchen Bataille, President and Professor of English, University of North Texas
