Murder on the Reservation
American Indian Crime Fiction
Ray B. Browne

Popular Press
A Ray and Pat Browne Book



"A foundation on which future studies in the sub-genre may be based or out of which they may develop."—Gerald Vizenor, author of Wordarrows

In Murder on the Reservation, Ray B. Browne surveys the work of all of the best-known writers of crime fiction involving Indian characters and references virtually every book that qualifies as an Indian-related mystery. Browne's analysis includes works of native and non-native authors and murder mysteries both on and off the reservation.

Ray Browne is the leading scholar in popular culture studies in the United States and coeditor of his signature series, Ray and Pat Browne Books. His most recent works include The Guide to United States Popular Culture, with coeditor Pat Browne. He is Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of popular culture at Bowling Green State University.

Review
"In Murder on the Reservation, Ray B. Browne surveys the work of all the best-known writers of crime fiction involving Indian characters, and references virtually every book that qualifies as an Indian-related mystery. Browne believes that within the genre of crime fiction, all people are created equal, and the increasing role of Indian characters in criminal fiction proves what an important role this genre plays as a powerful democratizing force in American society."
