Fourteen brutal and passionate stories by both Native American and non-Native writers, including New York Times-bestselling author Lawrence Block. Step into Indian Country-which comprises the entire North American continent, from the uppermost reaches of Canada to the island of Puerto Rico. Enter the dark welter of troubled history throughout the Americas, where the heritage of violence meets the ferocity of intent. An integral part of Native American culture, storytelling now takes a bleak turn to showcase the scope of indigenous peoples' experiences. Indian Country Noir features brand-new stories by Mistina Bates, Jean Rae Baxter, Lawrence Block, Joseph Bruchac, David Cole, Reed Farrel Coleman, O'Neil De Noux, A.A. HedgeCoke, Gerard Houarner, Liz Martinez, R. Narvaez, Kimberly Roppolo, Leonard Schonberg, and Melissa Yi. "Whatever the case, each situation is built around individuals doomed by their heritage. Ultimately, each story gives readers a disturbingly insightful and relatively unknown view of the lives of thousands of fellow citizens all but invisible to mainstream America." -The Denver Post "Written by both Native American and non-Native authors, the 14 stories in this worthy volume in Akashic's noir series range geographically from northern Canada to Puerto Rico and from New York's Adirondacks to Los Angeles." -Publishers Weekly
