 About the Book 

Diane Glancy, an author of Cherokee heritage, writes from the viewpoint of a feminist, postcolonial, literary-nationalist, Christian, and American.

As she balances her own complex identity, she mirrors the diverse perspectives of 21st century citizens. She occupies multiple histories and landscapes but never forgets allegiance to truth. In The Driven World, she creates an original vision of North America, pieced from real and invented historic documents, museum artifacts, and field notes. Language itself becomes a transformative tool, as it shapes an emerging myth. Diane Glancy has established herself as one of the countrys most versatile and prolific writers. Distinguished by her laconic honesty, she presents Native American life-especially the ways it intersects with nonnative culture-in all its complexity and nuance.
