Montana Humanities - One Book Montana

The Surrounded by D'Arcy McNickle is the book that was selected for "One Book Montana". Dottie Susag is the discussion moderator. The story is about "Archilde, a young man of dual cultural identity - Salish/Spanish - returns to the Flathead Reservation to say his last good bye after attending an Indian boarding school and working in Portland".

McNickle's book was written before all of the following author's books: James Welch, Scott Momaday, Leslie Silko, and Louise Erdrich books. Unfortunately the issues that are center in most of these books are still issues today.

Everyone is invited to participate in this discussion.
