Learning To Write "Indian": The Boarding-School Experience And American Indian Literature by Amelia V. Katanski (Marlene Crandell Francis Assistant Professor of English at Kalamazoo College in Michigan) is a historically accurate documentation of the forced assimilation of the Native American youth during the transition into the twentieth-century. As Learning To Write "Indian" investigates and deftly examines the hardships and pains that the American Indians were faced with, having to attend schools which denied them their families and tribes, their languages and religions, their culture. An invaluable contribution to Native American Studies, Learning To Write "Indian" is very strongly recommended to any American historian or enthusiast, students of the American Indian culture, and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in American history.
