"Touching Home: Stories and Poems by Tribal College Students" provides Indigenous views in creative and engaging ways. It weaves culture and tradition into the realities of modern-day reservations. The students confront assumptions and stereotypes.
Renowned Native American author Joseph Marshall introduces the book. "The writers and poets...offer insights into coping with and living in the contemporary world as who and what they are. They offer glimpses into their experiences, and of their individual and cultural connection to the past. They continue to define Native literature."
Touching Home is the first eBook published by Tribal College Journal. "We see new technologies as yet another way to connect with a wider audience -- a tool to bridge gaps, promote understanding, and increase support of Native American education," says Rachael Marchbanks, TCJ publisher.
