Review - Great Short Stories by Contemporary Native American Writers - Dover Thrift Edition

Great Short Stories by Contemporary Native American Writers - Bob Blaisdell

This was a great short story anthology but I have a problem with the term 'contemporary'.  This is most likely a personal thing, but when I hear the word 'contemporary' in conjunction with literature, I don't envision it including authors from the 19th century, or the first half of the 20th century.  

 

My favorites were Crow's Sun by Duane Niatum, The Dog Pit by Eli Funaro, and War Dances by Sherman Alexie.  I highly recommend this book of short stories for anyone looking to read the works of Native American authors.  

 

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review.
