Talking leaves : contemporary Native American short stories( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each of these authors writes of what he or she knows best, of what is in their blood: the traditions of their cultures ad the wounds of their hearts. From best selling authors such as Louise Erdrich an N. Scott Momaday, to new voice such as Diane Glancy and Gloria Bird, the result is a brilliant anthology resonant with feeling and color, as distinctive as the rhythms of a stomp dance, as enduring as stories passed from one generation with love. Editor Craig Lesly vividly captures the struggle of Native Americans who hope to preserve the wisdom of their ancestors in the face of a white world. Their writing reverberates with a sense of place, generational family loyalty, with the poverty and despair of the present, the power of old beliefs and the resiliency of a yet proud people." -- Provided by publisher

Burning fence : a western memoir of fatherhood by Craig Lesley( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Burning Fence, acclaimed novelist Craig Lesley turns his keen eye toward two difficult fathers and an alcohol-damaged Indian foster child, Craig's own "son," Wade. Abandoned by his shell-shocked father, Rudell, Craig grew up with his stepfather, Vern, a tough, controlling railroader. When events turned nasty, Craig, his mother, and his baby sister fled on the night train and arrived at an Indian reservation where his mother found work. Decades later, convinced he would be a better father than Rudell or Vern, Craig takes in the troubled Wade. But desperation over Wade's violent acts motivates Craig to seek out Rudell in remote Monument, Oregon. Craig hopes his father, a reclusive coyote trapper and poacher, will help raise his disturbed grandson. There Craig meets his colorful half-brother, Ormand, a would-be East Coast hit man, now "born again." Skillfully capturing the rural humor, rugged characters, and hardscrabble life of Eastern Oregon, Burning Fence presents a searing reflection on fatherhood and offers remarkable insight into the landscape of the Western heart
