Author of the critically acclaimed The Heirs of Columbus, Gerald Vizenor talks about his 1992 book, Dead Voices. He once again explores the theme of transformation, this time from the point of view of a Native American woman who visits the urban world disguised as a bear. Vizenor also discusses the romantic myth of reservation life and argues that people are better off in cities.
