David Treuer: Acclaimed Native American Lit Expert

David Treuer recently authored a book review of Steve Inskeep’s Jacksonland, an in depth look at the relationship between President Andrew Jackson and Cherokee Chief John Ross.

American writer, critic, and academic, Treuer is one of the country’s most noted experts on Native American culture, literature, and reservation life. His most recent book, Prudence, is a World War II era story of a privileged white B-17 bombardier and the social construct between the pilot and the Native Americans who work for him. Rez Life (2012) is a look into the historical and current way of life on Native American reservations through a fictional lens.
