"Weaving the compelling testimony of more than a hundred Native Americans, American Book Award recipient Joseph Bruchac tells the histories of Native American people. From Lakota to Apache to Abenaki, from Geronimo to Sitting Bull to lessknown voices, Lasting Echoes is the story of the American Indian as seen through Indian eyes. From the time of the arrival of the Europeans to the present, this is the epic tale of men and women who never forgot their connection to the land, of that their own lives and the lives of their people were one. With sensitivity and grace, Abenaki poet and author Joseph Bruchac narrates a personal history of his people in their words. Lasting Echoes is an important and compelling portrait of a proud and determined people." -- Publisher's description
