I have my reading class doing memoirs right now and I really liked one of them. It is called Warriors Don't Cry by Melba Patillo Beals. She is one of the Little Rock Nine who integrated central High School in 1957. It's her story about how horrrible that schools year was for her and the other eight students but also how her being a warrior helped shape her life. An interesting read. won't knock your socks off but I like learning about these kind of things.

I've been having Sherman Alexi recommended to me for quite awhile now. I'll have to pick up some of his stuff.
Annie, if you like short stories about Indians, have you ever read any of William Sanders' stuff? His short fiction is incredible, while I find his novels to just be so-so. Most of his short stuff is collected in Are We Having Fun Yet?.
