Available Now: TALES FROM INDIAN COUNTRY (edited by Troy D. Smith)

Edited and presented by Troy D. Smith—Spur Award-winning author and Assistant Professor of History, Tennessee Tech University—here is another worthwhile charity anthology that offers a fine assortment of stories for a good cause.

Standing Stone American Indian Cultural Center is located in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee, in the town of Monterey. SSAICC is dedicated to the preservation of the region's indigenous history and heritage. To further that goal, several authors have volunteered their work for this volume. All proceeds are being donated to the SSAICC. The stories feature American Indian protagonists and points of view, set in various regions and time periods. You will find tales of mystery and adventure, and of daily issues.

The following stories and authors are featured:
Miss Shoshone … by Win Blevins
The Last Willow Stick on the River … by Pamela Rentz
The Purification of Jim Barnes … by Troy D. Smith
Trickster's Song … by Christopher Reynaga
Play Dead or Die … by Rod Smith

And the beautiful cover is a 1915 painting, Indian Party, by Charles M. Russell

Available in both print and Kindle versions, this is something I'm sure you will want to add to your library.
