  • I was glad to find this autobiographical piece in Harper's, because I really enjoyed Treuer's piece, Return the National Parks to the Tribes in The Atlantic. He has a  unique perspective on America, I might even argue one of the most American perspectives, as his mother was a Native American and his father was a Holocaust Survivor. His family was sort of the definition of America: a mix between indigenous peoples and Europeans fleeing war and poverty.

    It's under the Letters category in Harper's, so it doesn't say much outright, but rather is a nice piece of writing to understand someone else's view of the world.
