Summary: An impressive body of work and a welcome contribution
Now in a newly updated and expanded second edition, "A To Z Of American Indian Women" by author and biographer Liz Sonneborn is an encyclopedic compendium of succinct biographies of 152 Native American women who have distinguished themselves in a range of professions and careers. Included are brief but informative profiles of activists, educators, potters, musicians, artists, physicians, politicians, lawyers, entertainers, and others. From Lori Arviso Alvord, who as a surgeon combined western medicine and Native American healing methods, to Molly Spotted Elk, an actress whose many roles were performed on the silver screen and the theatre stage, the "A To Z Of American Indian Women" is an impressive body of work and a welcome contribution to academic and community library Native American Studies and Women's Studies reference collections.
