Thirteen Native Americans representing a variety of tribal affiliations but all graduates of Dartmouth describe their experiences in and out of college, focusing on how they coped with sometimes-conflicting cultural demands and how they carried on their heritage. Some came from poor homes where alcoholism was common; others had highly educated parents who gave them encouragement and support. For most, however, success did not come easily. The decision to draw on the experiences of Dartmouth graduates only may at first seem self-congratulatory, since all the editors as well as the contributors have the Dartmouth Native American Program in common. Yet the essays are fresh and engaging and of high literary and journalistic quality. A unique perspective on a much-neglected aspect of college life; highly recommended.?Arla M. Lindgren, St. John's Univ., Jamaica, N.Y.
