Reviews
"An impressive volume with extensive footnotes, a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography, and a valuable index. It contains an in-depth discussion, analysis, and detailed history of a program that included fifty thousand students and became something of a household topic for several earlier decades." --The Journal of Arizona History

"Using historical themes of colonization, assimilation, and identity, Matthew Garrett presents an extraordinary revelation of indigenous resilience among 50,000 native students during the second half of the twentieth century. He argues convincingly for the survival of Indian identity as youth, becoming Lamanites, spent the formative years of their lives in the Indian Student Placement Program. This brilliant exposé advances our understanding of Indian-white relations, and it is truly an award-winning book!"
--Donald L. Fixico (Shawnee, Sac & Fox, Mvskoke Creek and Seminole), Distinguished Foundation Professor of History, Arizona State University


"An outstanding contribution."
--Laurie Maffly-Kipp, Archer Alexander Distinguished Professor of Religion and Politics, Washington University
