    There is lovely poetry in this book. There also are a couple of short stories. I think the purpose of the book was mostly to prove female American Natives can: 1. write (yes, they can), 2. have understandable feelings of loss, regret, pain, 3. women would run the world better than men do ( I agree). If you enjoy poetry, gentle reader, I'm sure there will be some in here you will like. There is lovely poetry in this book. There also are a couple of short stories.

    No matter how many times I give poetry a chance, I almost always leave it disappointed. I was really looking forward to reading some great Native American poetry about Native pasts, presents and futures, but instead all I got was some new-agey sounding drivel about nature and being one with the world. I enjoy highly politicized poetry in the first place, so this was especially disappointing. I did enjoy Joy Harjo's poems more than anyone else, but not nearly enough to rate this compilation more No matter how many times I give poetry a chance, I almost always leave it disappointed.

I did enjoy Joy Harjo's poems more than anyone else, but not nearly enough to rate this compilation more than one star. It just did not captivate me nearly as much as I was hoping. And poetry fails me again.

    This is one of my favorite books on Native American women'swriting with women from diverse backgrounds, tribes .Some are straight ,others lesbians, some live in cities , others in rural areas. Whether it be through poetry or stories what unites them is the power of their words. Their words are as if living peoples who both help them not only to survive but to spread the seeds of their knowledge and creativity. Speaking truth and weaving reality and dream into a sacred place where women are honor This is one of my favorite books on Native American women'swriting with women from diverse backgrounds, tribes .Some are straight ,others lesbians, some live in cities , others in rural areas.

Speaking truth and weaving reality and dream into a sacred place where women are honored and chosen for being who they are.....contributers in the living story.
