Back cover copy
Using the compelling testimony of more than one hundred Native Americans, American Book Award-Winner Joseph Bruchac tells the histories of seven generations of Native American people. From Lakota to Apache to Abenaki, from Geronimo to Sitting Bull to lesser-known voices, Lasting Echoes is the moving story of the American Indian peoples as seen through their own eyes. Starting with the arrival of the Europeans and moving forward to the present, this is the epic tale of men and women who never forgot their connection to the land, or that their own lives and the lives of their people were one. With sensitivity and grace, Abenaki poet and author Bruchac creates an important and compelling portrait of a proud and determined people.
