Acme (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1997) former staff writer for the The New Yorker White author Ian Frazier had a long standing admiration for Native Americans, and moved his family to Montana to be closer to Indian reservations. But On the Rez (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2000), his book about his experiences is surprisingly free of cliches about native American spirituality and the bleakness of life on the reservation. Join Melinda Penkava for a look at modern American Indian life with author Ian Frazier.
