The Big Blue Medicine Moon is a work of fiction that smacks of truth from the get-go. In a voice so real you can hear its deep cadence, Josseph Rynear weaves a tale, that while simple on the surface, is anything but. Stories within stories begin to emerge with the ephemeral quality of smoke from a ceremonial fire -- heat and sparks and ash, all co-mingled in a spirit wind that sweeps you along and won't let go.
When a whimsical and mysterious Native American, who has been well-educated in the white man's world appears in the Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico one evening, our unnamed narrator is lured into a vision quest by the gift of a Little red pipe that was carved long ago from a chunk of Minnesota red limestone. Before the quest is done, the story-threads of the Indian, the narrator, the pipe and the state of the world will have been woven into a blanket that warms the heart and the spirit.
This is a lovely, stately little book full of truths softly told, so they sneak up on you, tap you on the shoulder and leave you better than you were. "Your visions will remain with you," says Walking Elk to our storyteller. "They are part of you now." A lovely surprise.
