This collection of essays are not to be taken as a basic introduction to Native American literature. As these Cambridge series works often are, they are "companion" pieces to a readership who already has some basic knowledge on the topic and would like to explore further. With its chapter outline, it serves a good survey-purpose. It provides a historical context, lays out genre related structures and focuses on individual authors. It's a good initial guide book for those interested.
