    This was assigned reading in a graduate-level poetry class, and for good reason. It's the best poetry anthology out there. Period. No one has topped it.

    just like any kind of poetry really. i mainly liked the fact that all the poetry was written by native americans, besides that it had a good variety of poetry. a very good mixture of poems that made me feel alot of different ways that weren't to over the top... like i could read one sink myself into that for the day. just like any kind of poetry really. i mainly liked the fact that all the poetry was written by native americans, besides that it had a good variety of poetry. a very good mixture of poems that made me feel alot of different ways that weren't to over the top... like i could read one sink myself into that for the day.
