Product Overview

In Not Far Away, a semi-fictional memoir, Lois Beardslee gives a chilling acount of racism, particularly that leveled against Native women, in language that is supple, evocative, often comical, and always incisive. Her fictional heroine, the teacher Ima Pipiig (pronounced buh-BEEG ), endures humiliating insults from school administrators, fellow teachers, students, and callous neighbors. For years, she suffers in silence, believing that opposing bigotry would only fuel its caustic flames--but then she begins to speak out. Scattered among the chapters chronicling Imas experiences are essays and speeches written by the author herself, blurring the line between fiction and fact and creating a kind of resounding echo of resistance that is the authors response to racism. *Author: Beardslee, Lois/ Beard, Steve *Series Title: Contemporary Native American Communities *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 282 *Publication Date: 2007/09/21 *Language: English *Dimensions: 6.14 x 9.21 x 0.69 inches
