Spirit Moves: The Story of Six Generations of Native Women by Loree Boyd
illustrated, Softcover, 436 pages, New World Library ©1996
Evocative stories about the lives of the author's Cree/Blackfoot Metis American family including her great-grandmother, grandmother, and her mother are poetic and thought-provoking. "It would not be an overstatement to say I was often in awe of them," the author writes, "when I considered the courage, determination, and spirit that not only enabled them to survive . . . but to go that one step further." Boyd tells about prejudice against Native Americans, physical abuse, and the cultural destruction of her people. Her stories about the endurance of these women give readers a strong model of a family determined to survive.
