This is an intelligent and insightful application of post-modern critical methods to American Indian texts. The scope of the study is broad and ambitious, and the attempt to define Indian self-representations from colonial times to the present is innovative and instructive.

--Raymond J. DeMallie... very suggestive, provocative, engaging... --Studies in American Indian Literatures... Murrays book establishes itself as the single best introduction to Native American text-making in particular and the betrayals of the translation in general. An essential acquisition for all college and university libraries, and highly recommended for larger public libraries.

--ChoiceIt is a pleasure to recommend with wholehearted enthusiasm David Murrays Forked Tongues. --Western American Literature
