In the Cascade Range of northwest Washington, Tom Joseph, a young Indian who had gone south to attend college, returns for his uncle's funeral and finds himself caught up in the old man’s fight to save the wilderness from destruction. In his first novel, Louis Owens exposes the raw edge of the current American land-rights controversy and poses questions about authenticity and the common bonds that American Indians, of very different or mixed backgrounds, are in the process of discovering today.

"For many, wolf is a great teacher - the very spirit of strength and endurance. For others he inspires deep-seated anxieties, fears that have resulted in a campaign of extermination so long-lived that, until recently, the wolf has teetered on the edge of extinction. From famous "outlaw" wolves of the early twentieth centeury, such as Ghost Wolf and Snowdrift (who had bounties on their heads), to the archetypal Father Wolf of Native American religion, Wolfsong explores the complexity of our relationship to the wolf and pays tribute to this elegant and wise animal."--Jacket.

A Wolf Song is a healing story about a multidimensional, dual-life journey of tragedy, gratitude and forgiveness. Its key characters—Hanna and Margaret; their “spirit” wolves, Nano and Nala; family members; and teacher Trudy Goodenough—meet every ten years under Trudy’s guidance and the wolves’ whims. The story begins at childbirth; the girls meet nearing their tenth birthday and discover their wolf spirits under a jump rope. Each chapter contains a verse which reveals the lessons of each chapter. Ordered to meet every ten years by the wolves, Hanna and Margaret meet at twenty in Wales and in New York City at thirty. Nano and Nala are not necessarily balanced. Their karmic rites spill over into the young women’s lives. One of the wolf spirits wreaks havoc at a public event, and a battle between light and darkness ensues. “Lisa Osina’s book brings you into an enduring balance between the physical world and the world of spirit.” Lynn Andrews, shaman and author of Medicine Woman and 27 other spiritual and self-empowerment books.

For better or worse, representations abound of Native Americans as a people with an innate and special connection to the earth. This study looks at the challenges faced by Native American writers who confront stereotypical representations as they assert their own ethical relationship with the earth. Lee Schweninger considers a range of genres (memoirs, novels, stories, essays) by Native writers from various parts of the United States. Contextualizing these works within the origins, evolution, and perpetuation of the “green” labels imposed on American Indians, Schweninger shows how writers often find themselves denying some land ethic stereotypes while seeming to embrace others. Taken together, the time periods covered inListening to the Landspan more than a hundred years, from Luther Standing Bear’s description of his late-nineteenth-century life on the prairie to Linda Hogan’s account of a 1999 Makah hunt of a gray whale. Two-thirds of the writers Schweninger considers, however, are well-known voices from the second half of the twentieth century, including N. Scott Momaday, Louise Erdrich, Vine Deloria Jr., Gerald Vizenor, and Louis Owens. Few ecocritical studies have focused on indigenous environmental attitudes, in comparison to related work done by historians and anthropologists.Listening to the Landwill narrow this gap in the scholarship; moreover, it will add individual Native American perspectives to an understanding of what, to these writers, is a genuine Native American philosophy regarding the land.

WOLF SONG is a tribute to four remarkable animals who graced my life during my 'old age'. For me it is a tale of survival and enlightenment, and for the wild creatures I chose to share my life in Taos, New Mexico, a saga of growth and adventure With Panee, my strongwilled, Gray Mexican Wolf and her high-spirited progeny, I began sixteen years of daily and nightly adventures that would challenge the most astute military minds. Now that my wolves have passed into a Great Wilderness, I treasure wonderful memories of humourous, hair-raising escapades and a sense of fulfillment and respect for four elegant, wild creatures whose manners I found to resemble humans in more ways than I could ever have dreamed possible. As the daughter of a Canadian "Mountie," Paulle Clark spent her youth in northern Canada, attended university in Vancouver and, after winning two drama scholarships embarked on a theatrical career in repertory. During her professional career, she also appeared on film and television in Canada, U.S.A. and England. She has travelled and worked on five continents as a professional actor, couture model, script editor, and director/producer of the science/ nature TV series for children, Fishtales, and, OWL/TV for PBS, which were the recipient of many film festival awards and were broadcast internationally. In 1987 she retired to Taos, NM where she raised her small wolfpack. She is presently writing, Half The Fun Was Getting There, a memoir of her experiences in the world of rich and famous.
