Lewis and Clark : across the divide by Carolyn Gilman( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lewis and Clark: Across the Divide expands and transforms this familiar story by exploring the social and cultural landscapes the expedition traversed. Lewis and Clark: Across the Divide also follows the explorers' steps by reconstructing the richly physical worlds of the expeditions. Gathered in this volume are 400 illustrations, the results of a five-year enterprise to trace and authenticate the original artifacts, documents, maps, and artworks of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Scattered for two hundred years, the surviving physical evidence is now reassembled from more than fifty lending institutions and individuals across the United States. The result is a new view of the equipment the expedition used as well as the color, complexity, and diversity of the cultures they encountered - items that gave the young Republic its first glimpse of what later became the cross-continental nation. A concluding essay weaves together contemporary tribal perspectives to summarize Native American experiences since Lewis and Clark's visit, mapping out a powerful - and hopeful - vision for the future."--Jacket
Dark orbit by Carolyn Gilman( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Nebula and Hugo Award-nominated Carolyn Ives Gilman comes Dark Orbit, a compelling novel featuring alien contact, mystery, and murder. Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate. Thora was once a member of the interplanetary elite, but since her prophetic delusions helped mobilize a revolt on Orem, she's been banished to the farthest reaches of space, because of the risk that her very presence could revive unrest. Upon arrival, the team finds an extraordinary crystalline planet, laden with dark matter. Then a crew member is murdered and Thora mysteriously disappears. Thought to be uninhabited, the planet is in fact home to a blind, sentient species whose members navigate their world with a bizarre vocabulary and extrasensory perceptions. Lost in the deep crevasses of the planet among these people, Thora must battle her demons and learn to comprehend the native inhabitants in order to find her crewmates and warn them of an impending danger. But her most difficult task may lie in persuading the crew that some powers lie beyond the boundaries of science."--

Pushed by U.S. government policies and pulled by new opportunities, they moved up the Missouri River and built homes on the reservation at an isolated spot they called Independence. About 20 years later, Gilbert L. Wilson, and anthropologist with an insatiable interest and an a tireless pencil, went to Independence to record information about traditional Hidatsa life. There three members of one family--Buffalo Bird Woman, her brother Wolf Chief, and her son Goodbird--agreed to tell him their stories. This book is based on the memories of Buffalo Bird Woman's family shared with Wilson and on the cultural artifacts that they sold him. It is a powerful and personal description of one family's journey from a traditional, clan-oriented society ot the industrialized, individualistic world of 20th-century America. Their stories speak for the thousands of other Indian families whose experiences were never recorded"--Book cover
