A CIRCLE OF NATIONS: VOICES AND VISIONS OF AMERICAN INDIANS, edited by John Gattuso. Beyond Words Publishing, 13950 NW Pumpkin Ridge Road, Hillsboro, OR 97123, (800) 284-9673, (503) 647-5114 FAX. Illustrated, notes. 128 pp., $39.95 cloth. 0-941831-90-6

This striking combination of essays, poems, and photographs by a who's who of Native American writers and artists is a celebration of life from a unique and creative viewpoint. These are the words and faces of pain, oppression, survival, and endurance. The authors include Leslie Marmon Silko (who provides the forward to the book), Simon Ortiz, Joy Harjo, Paula Gunn Allen, Michael Dorris, Linda Hogan, Gabriel Horn (White Deer of Autumn), Debra Calling Thunder, and the photographers include Joe Martin Cantrell, David Neel, Nancy Ackerman, Larry Gus, Greg Staats, and Kenny Blackbird. This warm and spirited volume is an exquisite work, sure to be an award-winner and perfect as a gift. Highly recommended. Reviewd by Steve Brock
