About this Item

A powerful collection of poems, which many consider his best book to date and which one prominent poet and critic was quoted as saying should have won the Pulitzer Prize if the judges had had any courage. The title alludes to an infamous massacre of unarmed Cheyenne and Arapaho men, women and children in 1864, and the poems address moral, spiritual, and political issues -- in particular, the process of victimization and the possibility of finding some kind of redemption -- with urgency, clarity and poetic grace. This is the simultaneous issue in wrappers. Warmly inscribed by the author to Joe [Bruchac] in the year of publication. Fine. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings.
