Singing An Indian Song: A Biography of D'Arcy McNickle

Synopsis

Based on a wide range of previously untapped sources, this first full-length biography traces the course of McNickle's life from the reservation of his childhood through a career of major import to American Indian political and cultural affairs. In so doing it reveals a man who affirmed his own heritage while giving a collective Indian voice to many who had previously seen themselves only in a tribal context.
