Reviews

Show[s] the remarkable progression of a writer determined to reconnect with her past and make sense of her present, drawing together the brutalities of contemporary reservation life with the beauty and sensibility of Native American culture and mythology....Alive with compassion, pain and love, this book is unquestionably an act of kindness.
I turn and return to Harjo's poetry for her breathtaking complex witness and for her world-remaking language.--Adrienne Rich
