Description

A musical, magical, resilient volume from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States. When Harjo confronts tragedy, she becomes our conscience. This is not merely a book of poetry. These are instructions for the soul, a song to lead the reader home…[Harjo is] the first lady of American Indian poetry. Joy Harjo’s is a marvelous instrument that veins through a dark lode of American history. The poet’s finely tuned voice goes where ‘Midnight is a horn player,’ driven by tribute, prayer, and blues, excavating names, places, and dreams. And at the end of this epic voyage the reader surfaces at sunrise. [Joy Harjo’s] poetry is light and elixir, the very best prescription for us in wounded times. Harjo masterfully helps us travel through landscape and it’s hard not to feel such loss but also a glimmer of hope as these poems brace against what it means to listen to the land and to each other.
