Ballowe, James, Distinguished Professor of English, emeritus. A Man of Salt and Trees: The Life of Joy Morton. DeKalb, IL: Northern Illinois University Press, 2009.

A Man of Salt and Trees is a biography about Joy Morton (1855–1934), founder of The Morton Arboretum and Morton Salt, a prominent brand name in the United States. The Morton Arboretum is an internationally acclaimed outdoor museum of woody plants.

The book begins in Nebraska before the Civil War and ends in Chicago in the midst of the Great Depression.

Ballowe used the extensive correspondence of the Morton family to write the book that describes the life of a Nebraska farm boy who became a leading citizen of Chicago and an integral figure in technological and economical development.

Dennis Downey of Millersville University writes, “The great strength of this book is its use of Morton Papers to give a close reading of the subject’s life and corporate achievements. It provides a concrete case study of larger themes and issues historians associate with Chicago’s coming of age as a regional and national center of commerce and culture.”

Ann Keating of North Central College said the book is well-written and clearly organized. Keating writes, “Ballowe makes excellent use of primary sources to create a literate and engaging biography.”

Brill de Ramírez, Susan. Native American Life History Narratives: Colonial and Postcolonial Navajo Ethnography. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 2007.

Native American Life History Narratives: Colonial and Postcolonial Navajo Ethnography analyzes, from a literary perspective, ethnographic work about the Navajos produced as autobiographies. This book provides a valuable resource for scholars and students by helping readers of texts, such as Son of Old Man Hat, find an appreciation of stories previously read only for informational purposes. In the case of most of the studied ethnographies, researchers went into Navajo (Diné) country and recorded the oral presentations of tribal members. Then, translated and edited versions were published as life history narratives. As Brill de Ramírez demonstrates, there is much more lying beneath the surface of the published autobiographies.

The book provides an overview of the work conducted in Navajo country throughout the 20th century by various ethnographers and describes how to determine reliability and storytelling ambiguity of the ethnographic works. Brill de Ramírez brings to light strategies for discovering the symbolic depth and richness in the ethnographically recorded stories of the Navajos by elucidating literary tools for accessing the underlying stories. As Brill de Ramírez shows, a literary eye and a storytelling ear can open up the originating oral stories that, in some cases, prove to be trickster tales far different from what has been presented in the presumably autobiographical texts.

Renowned photographer John Pack, director of the Aegean School of Fine Arts in Greece, recently said about the discussion of his ethnographic work among the Navajo, “What delights me is that the truthfulness and integrity of my work was apparent and that my (photographic) relationship with the Navajo was important enough for you to include in your insightful book.”

This award-winning volume received the Academic Book Award for 2006–2007 by the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers and the Southwest Books of the Year Notable Book Award by the Tucson-Pima County Library System, 2008.

Brill de Ramírez, Susan, and Evelina Zuni Lucero, editors. Simon J. Ortiz: A Poetic Legacy of Indigenous Continuances. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 2009.

This volume, edited by Brill de Ramírez and Lucero (chair of the Creative Writing Department at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, N.M.), presents the first scholarly collection devoted to the work of the pioneering Native American poet, prose fiction writer, storyteller, and scholar Simon J. Ortiz. Ortiz is a member of the Acoma Pueblo tribe. His monumental contributions to American literature, to Native American literary development and study, and global indigenous literatures have been widely recognized. Ortiz’s many collections of poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, and children’s books (over two dozen) are regarded as some of the most important contributions to 20th and early 21st century literature.

Brill de Ramírez and Lucero begin the book with a tripartite introduction that places Ortiz’s work within the framework of Pueblo Indian history and culture, provides readers with insights into the depth and breadth of Ortiz’s literary craft, and introduces readers to the range of scholarship and creative essays in the volume. Simon J. Ortiz: A Poetic Legacy of Indigenous Continuance includes interviews with Ortiz, two of his own essays, creative nonfiction essays by a range of Native American women writers and scholars, several poems in honor of Ortiz by Native American poets, and critical scholarship by over a dozen leading scholars of Native American literatures. Ortiz’s primary role in the development of cultural studies, Native American literature, and indigenous studies worldwide is detailed in the text, which describes the larger political, historical, and cultural factors that have informed Ortiz’s life and writing and transformed Native American writing throughout the last 40 years.
