: Boy, oh, boy! The contrast in the Native American culture between "Deerslayer" and "Reservation Blues" is shocking. I don't think the clubs could have picked any two books that would be more provocative than these two are when read together.

interesting that you say that. Since I haven't read any of the two (yet; I really want to get the Alexie book, maybe on Thursday...), I'd be curious to hear what exactly you mean. I imagine contrasts like the portrayal as noble or even idyllic vs. the brutally honest portrayal of today's reality. But I'm just guessing. Can you tell us more?
