A great writer's journey of exploration in an American place that is both strange and deeply familiar. In Ian Frazier's bestselling Great Plains, he described meeting a man in New York City named Le War Lance, "an Oglala Sioux Indian from Oglala, South Dakota." In On the Rez, Frazier returns to the plains and focuses on a place at their center-the Pine Ridge Reservation in the prairie and badlands of South Dakota, home of the Oglala Sioux. Frazier drives around "the rez" with Le War Lance and other Oglalas as they tell stories, visit relatives, go to powwows and rodeos and package stores, and try to find parts to fix one or another of their on-the-verge-of-working cars. On the Rez considers Indian ideas of freedom and community and equality that are basic to how we view ourselves. Most of all, he examines the Indian idea of heroism-its suffering and its pulse-quickening, public-spirited glory. On the Rez portrays the survival, through toughness and humor, of a great people whose culture has shaped our American identity.

Good Friday on the Rez follows the author on a one-day, 280-mile round-trip from his boyhood Nebraska hometown of Alliance to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, where he reconnects with his longtime friend and blood brother, Vernell White Thunder. In a compelling mix of personal memoir and recent American Indian history, David Hugh Bunnell debunks the prevalent myth that all is hopeless for these descendants of Crazy Horse, Red Cloud, and Sitting Bull and shows how the Lakota people have recovered their pride and dignity and why they will ultimately triumph. What makes this narrative special is Bunnell's own personal experience of close to forty years of friendships and connections on the Rez, as well as his firsthand exposure to some of the historic events. When he lived on Pine Ridge at the same time of the American Indian Movement's seventy-one-day siege at Wounded Knee in 1973, he met Russell Means and got a glimpse behind the barricades. Bunnell has also seen the more recent cultural resurgence firsthand, attending powwows and celebrations, and even getting into the business of raising a herd of bison. Substantive and raw, Good Friday on the Rez is for readers who care about the historical struggles and the ongoing plight of Native Americans, and in particular, that of the Lakota Sioux, who defeated the U.S. Army twice, and whose leaders have become recognized as among America's greatest historical figures. Good Friday on the Rez is a dramatic page-turner, an incredible true story that tracks the torment and miraculous resurrection of Native American pride, spirituality, and culture—how things got to be the way they are, where they are going, and why we should care.

Karen Charboneau is a respected and, by most standards, successful ceramics artist who is Chippewa and lives on the Red Cliff Reservation in Northern Wisconsin. Born and raised there, she is at least as well regarded on the Rez for her superior woodsman skills and is known to one and all as Tracker. Most of the tracking she does, however, involves tourists who've wandered off the paths and gotten lost - people who want desperately to be found. But the normally quiet Red Cliff Rez is currently rocked by an ever-widening scandal - the widely disliked tribal attorney Judah Boiseneau has been found murdered in his office. Everyone is sure that the man responsible is his cousin, Benny Pelican. But Benny has disappeared into the reservation - and as someone who knows the land, he won't be easy to find. With the Tribal Chairman leaning on him to resolve the case quickly, the local B.I.A. agent and the Bayfield County Sheriff department breathing down his neck, reservation Police Chief David Lameraux has to turn to the only person he's sure can find the missing suspect - Tracker. Nothing is as simple as it appears, however, and it's going to take all of the combined skill, knowledge and luck of Lameraux and Tracker if they are to have any chance of resolving this perplexing murder.

Science Fiction and Fantasy inspired by life on America's Indian Reservations. Life on a reservation embodies two of the major themes in Speculative Fiction- The Other, and Being Human. The people (both Native and non-Native) who live on a reservation encounter (or are forced into) situations on a daily basis that explore what it is to be The Other in society, or challenge what it means to maintain one's humanity in the face of change. So join us inside as we travel from a dusty street in Northwest Montana to the icy moons of Jupiter; as we discover long-lost tribes and meet the newest member of the family in the near future; and as we find that life on the rez isn't only for the living (at least not if the number of ghosts there is any indication!)
