Overview

Joy Harjo, one of this country's foremost Native American voices, combines elements of storytelling, prayer, and song, informed by her interest in jazz and by her North American tribal background, in this, her fourth volume of poetry.

She draws from the Native American tradition of praising the land and the spirit, the realities of American culture, and the concept of feminine individuality.

What People are Saying About This

Adrienne Rich

I turn and return to Harjo's poetry for her breathtaking, complex witness and for her world-remaking language: precise, unsentimental, miraculous.

Sandra Cisneros

I fell in love with these poems, with their clarity and light, their wisdom born somewhere between sky and earth.
