Tuxedo Press Celebrates American Indian Heritage Month


Special program offered to libraries to encourage them to add books with American Indian themes to their collections.

Carlisle, PA, November 07, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Several books published by Tuxedo Press have American Indian themes but are underrepresented in the nations’ libraries. To encourage libraries, both public and academic, to add these books to their collections, any library that adds the recently released “Doctors, Lawyers, Indian Chiefs,” a Finalist in the Native American Studies category of the National Best Books 2008 Awards, to its collection will be given a copy of the “Keep A-goin’: the life of Lone Star Dietz,” the 2006 award-winning biography by Tom Benjey.

Benjey’s new book explores the lives of more than 50 Native Americans who attended the government’s flagship off-reservation Indian boarding school. These never-before-told biographies convert lists of names into living, breathing people with strengths, weaknesses, foibles and idiosyncrasies. After reading this book, you will soon wonder why names such as Frank Cayou, William Gardner, Frank Mt. Pleasant, Charles Wahoo and James Phillips, to name a few, are unfamiliar to most people.

Only through spending great amounts of time and effort researching these people was Dr. Benjey able to not only tell the individual life stories but to tie them together into a larger narrative. This book is not just for historians or football fans, but is important to better understand life at government Indian boarding schools.

The American Indian Heritage Month program is available only from Tuxedo Press.

Doctors, Lawyers, Indian Chief, ISBN 978-0-9774486-7-8, 352 pages, softcover.

Keep A-goin’: the life of Lone Star Dietz, ISBN 0-9774486-0-6, 356 pages, softcover.
