Walking to the Edge
Essays of Resistance

Margaret Randall
South End Press, Boston, 1991, 224 pages, $12.00
ISBN: 0-89608-397-7

Insightfully links the impact of U.S. foreign policy on the people of Latin America, the female voice in art and literature, and the need to break the silence around incest and other abuse.

"These essays are a blow against censorship. The Immigration and Naturalization Service attempted to deport Randall upon her return from Latin America, for the status quo still fears what she and writers like her have to offer: a clear, strong, articulate commitment to socialist and feminist values, with a call to action for the establishment of those values as a way of life. She is dangerous to the interests of the tiny elite who run this country - and for that we should be thankful."
-Martín Espada, author of Rebellion Is the Circle of a Lover´s Hand

"A moving chronicle of the last half of the century from one of America's rebellious daughters. She makes a powerful witness." —Joy Harjo, author, She Had Some Horses

All Our Relations
Native Struggles For Land And Life

Winona LaDuke
South End Press, Cambridge, MA; Honor the Earth, Minneapolis, MN 1999
ISBN O-89608-599-6, 241 pages, paperback $16.00

A readable, fact and emotion-filled review of native peoples' struggles to defend their land and culture against devastating 'development' projects and encroaching industry, mining, military (mis)use, in North America and Hawai'i. The work of many women leaders is presented.

"In the final analysis, the survival of Native America is fundamentally about the collective survival of all human beings. The question of who gets to determine the destiny of the land, and of the people who live on it - those with the money or those who pray on the land - is a question that is alive throughout society. The question is posed eloquently by Lil'wat grandmother Loretta Pascal:

This is my reason for standing up. To protect all around us, to continue our way of life, our culture. I ask them, "Where did you get your right to destroy these forests? How does your right supercede my rights?" These are our forests, these are our ancestors."

Winona LaDuke lives on the White Earth reservation in Minnesota and is an enrolled member of the Mississippi band of Anishinaabeg. She is the executive director of the Honor the Earth Fund and founding director of the White Earth Land Recovery Project... In 1994, she was named by Time as one of the America's 50 most promising leaders under 40 years of age. - about the author
