In CIRCLES, Ruby Standing Deer explores the relationship between her Dakota heritage and her experiences in the modern American world. This work is a reflection on how these two parts of her identity inform her writing."The book starts with a story about my mother's family, who were the first Native American people to be placed on reservations in North Dakota, and ends with me returning to my reservation as an adult and thinking about which part of our history was more meaningful."Ruby Standing Deer's book CIRCLES is a memoir about how one woman's heritage as a Dakota native in the United States led to both personal growth and writing career success. The book starts with the story of Ruby's mother leaving their tribe when she was just 15 years old so she could attend boarding school in Minnesota.

A women's health book about the complicated issue of menstruation, menstruation, and the body, by a woman. From a list of all the books I'm reading for my book club.

CIRCLES is an amazing book for all students with ADD. I wish I could say that it was the first time I saw a teacher come up with such a book. But, I'm pretty sure it's not. CIRCLES has been used in many schools and colleges worldwide for teaching ADD and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) to students. As parents and teachers, we are constantly bombarded with information about how children's brains work and how to help our kids

CIRCLES is the only book you need to read to understand the true nature of the Earth, and how it works. This book will help you to understand why the global climate is changing in a way that we are not prepared for. It will also help you to understand why there is so much increased activity in the Earth's climate system, and why so much of the change that we are seeing is not natural. And finally, this book is about what we can do about it

I needed to write a literature review about Circles and Eyes books. I read Circles with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Ruby Standing Deer is a wonderful writer.
