This collection of essays chronicles the experience of being the last breath of a dying culture and existing between two worlds: the Native American community and White American society. It is an exploration of the history of violence against and attempted eradication of Native American tribes, the things a culture loses as its people feel forced to assimilate, and how family and myth blend into one another as generations pass. It is the experience of one woman trying to put her cultural and family history together, so that a record exists even when her tribe is gone completely.
