About this title

Synopsis:

Glossy paperback 1994 140p. 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.40 POETRY AND PROSE BY AL HUNTER; DENISE SWEET; JIM NORTHRUP; ADRIAN C. LOUIS

From Library Journal:

There is no surer proof of the flourishing of Native American writing than the appearance of this anthology, showcasing the work of four indisputably gifted writers. Hunter writes poems about ancestors and totem animals; with his "unbridled" mind, he perceives "the singing voice/of water/melting ice." Denise Sweet, easily the most literary of the four, writes poignantly about damaged lives but also creates beautiful poetry out of unpromising topics like shoes, tomatoes, and parking. Jim Northrup's short stories about life on the "rez" (reservation) are moving and memorable, especially "Veterans Dance," about posttraumatic shock disorder among survivors of the Vietnam War. Adrian C. Louis raises the angriest and most powerful voice, chastising both "effete white poets" and Native Americans "ashamed of Indian blood." In Sweet's words, all these writers brilliantly chart the "stellar maps of/story and myth." Highly recommended.
