Praise for Walking on Earth and Touching the Sky
"This is an important collection that offers opportunities for insight into a culture that has too often been either ignored or misunderstood."
--Booklist, starred review
"A moving, fascinating glimpse across cultures. Vivid, polychromatic illustrations by Nelson accompany the students’ evocative works."
"As a collection, the poems present an interesting, eye-opening look at the Lakota culture, which is one that is often overlooked. The paintings by S.D. Nelson are gorgeous and vibrant."

This book would make a great coffee table piece, as well as an excellent addition to a poetry collection. It’s heartfelt and real. These kids are offering up their hearts and souls to the readers of this book. The least we can do is give them a chance to express themselves.Was this review helpful?
