Product Description

Review

Transcribed interviews allow the adoptees to powerfully and poignantly express the impact of their experiences, thus challenging readers to make their own meaning....The book is important because it tackles an ignored subject....Recommended. Two-star review. (CHOICE, March 2009)

Not since David Fanshel's Far from the Reservation has a study so thoroughly examined the effects of transracial adoption on Native American people. This study fills an important gap in the history of the transracial adoption of Native American children. It portrays, in wonderful detail, the struggles of twenty Native Americans between the ages of twenty-five and fifty-nine who were transracially adopted as children into non-Native American families (sixteen into white families). It illustrates the 'highs' and 'lows' of their experiences and concludes by candidly addressing the ambivalence felt by these individuals to transracial adoption. (Howard Altstein, School of Social Work, University of Maryland)

HASH(0xa3c838d0) out of 5 stars Real stories! Aug. 3 2012

This is a great collection. I use it to teach university classes about identity in the United States. I just love that the stories are real and gritty. The subjects are all so different from each other. The students who read this book learn quickly that you can't generalize from one story.
