GROWING UP NATIVE AMERICAN: AN ANTHOLOGY, edited by Patricia Riley. William Morrow and Company, 1350 Avenue of the Americas, N.Y., NY 10019, (800) 843-9389, (201) 227-6849 FAX.

This is a potent "coming of age" collection that embraces childhood memories from frontier life to the city streets, from boarding schools to urban rat packs. Each of the twenty stories, both personal histories and excerpts from fiction, depict children and the highly individual ways that they master life's lessons. The authors include Leslie Marmon Silko, N. Scott Momaday, Louise Erdrich, Linda Hogan, and Simon Ortiz. Highly recommended. Reviewed by: Steve Brock
