Product DescriptionThe fifteen Native women writers inReckonings document transgenerational trauma, yet they also celebrate survival. Their stories are vital testaments of our times.

Here you will find much-loved stories, many made easily accessible for the first time, and vibrant new stories by well-known contemporary Native American writers as well as fresh emergent voices. These stories share an understanding of Native women's lives in their various modes of loss and struggle, resistance and acceptance, and rage and compassion, ultimately highlighting the individual and collective will to endure against all odds.Reckonings features short stories by: Paula Gunn Allen, Kimberly M. Blaeser, Beth E. Brant, Anita Endrezze, Louise Erdrich, Diane Glancy, Reid G?mez, Janet Campbell Hale, Joy Harjo, Linda Hogan, Misha Nogha, Beth H.
