-  Celebrated novelist, academic and critic David Treuer is an Ojibwe Indian from Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. His honors and awards include a Pushcart Prize, the 1996 Minnesota Book Award for his novel "Little" and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Bush Foundation and the Guggenheim Foundation. "Rez Life: An Indian's Journey Through Reservation Life" (Grove Press), Treuer's first full-length work of nonfiction, examines past and present Native American reservation life, language and culture, and explores issues such as sovereignty, treaty rights, natural-resource conservation and many public policy issues. Treuer uses authoritative research and reportage to recount the history of conflict and the nature of the relationship between the United States government and the Native American population; his result makes for a memorable piece in understanding the Native American story.
