Growing up in a gang in the city can be dark. Growing up Native American in a gang in Chicago is a whole different story. This book takes a trip through that unexplored part of Indian Country, an intense journey that is full of surprises, shining a light on the interior lives of people whose intellectual and emotional concerns are often overlooked. This dark, compelling, occasionally inappropriate, and often hilarious linked story collection introduces a character who defies all stereotypes about urban life and Indians. He will be in readers' heads for a long time to come.

From the Author:

As Stephen Graham Jones said so kindly, "This isn't a book, it's a life." Hope you enjoy it.

From the Back Cover:

"Sacred Smokes knocked me out with its hyperreal voice of an Indian gang member trying to survive the streets of Chicago. He sings his people's blues in fast-river poetry that shakes your mind and defies stereotypes. A necessary read!"
            --Susan Power, author of The Grass Dancer
