Welcome to the Seventh Annual Conference of the Society for Protection and Reclamation of Indian Images. Expect to find, amid all the refined cultural observations, academic posturing, and political maneuvering, an Indian who defies anyone to protect, let alone reclaim, her image. This is Shirley Mounter, a Tuscarora woman and the chief storyteller among the acerbic, eloquent, and often hilarious speakers who overflow the pages of this latest novel by the noted Onondaga writer Eric Gansworth. A lecture on Indian stereotypes by Shirley’s daughter, art historian Annie Boans, calls forth Shirley’s recollections, whose outpourings deposit us in the turbulent yet restorative waters of modern Iroquoian reservation life, always flowing and eddying around kin. Indeed, Shirley’s house and land are now, after a long and bitter fight, forever lost to her in the construction of a water reservoir that feeds the government’s hydroelectric plant. The story of this battle is the story of Shirley’s generation and the faltering generation that follows—of violent love and losses, of children turning away only to find themselves forever negotiating the nuances of identity, of popular culture in jarring juxtaposition with the sometimes even more incredible realities of Native life. Weaving a complex narrative illustrated with his own paintings, Gansworth creates a rich, wry, and multifaceted tapestry of the intricate twists and turns of coincidence, memories, and stories that bind Native families together.

Eric Gansworth's book, "Mending Skins" is a great read. At first I was a bit put off by other third party reviews of Eric's book, but after I read his book I feel those reviews are/were inaccurate. His story pulled me in and that is a rare commodity in these turbulent times. Thank You Eric I look forward to your next installment.

Book was decent, had to read it for school. However, I couldn't find it in any stores local to me and had to rush to order it online. Luckily, I received it in such a timely fashion my grade was not affected. Very satisfied thank you!

Eric Gansworth creates a rich text in both image and language. The power of Gansworth's intellect reflects in every equisitely crafted chapter that follows the contemporary formula of being able to stand alone or as a short story. The chapter endings are all "textbook," concluded at just the right image. In terms of craft this is one beautiful work. Gansworth's characters, written in the realism tradition, are authentic enough to come knocking on your front door, that is if you live near the Tuscarora Rez. Gansworth, who is also a talented artist, weaves his original watercolors thoughout the novel. His paintings reflect what is happening in the story during selected scenes. Amazing! Brilliant! And Beautiful!

Gansworth has produced a work that many readers of American Indian Literature will find engaging and fresh.

Dealing with such topics as academic posturing, Natives exploited in film, and quilting, Gansworth manifests

displacement due to an overdevelopment project into a subset of stories that ring true of reservation life and how the loss of one's home impacts the lives of many, in extraordinary and subtle ways.
