Publisher Comments:

Written over a period of twelve years and published in magazines and anthologies, these beautiful poems of place and Abenaki Indian heritage are addressed to the land, to the poet's two sons James and Jesse, to his wife Carol, and to himself. A few poems invoking the land join others of close observation of the natural world of native New England and the poet's meditations upon it. In its essence, the land and culture Bruchac celebrates is not lost to him, but is a heritage to be passed on through his family. In a second section, "Traveling Stories," the well-traveled poet views creatures and events from his perspective. In these encounters a notable fact emerges: Bruchac is always at home, always centered, no matter what he encounters. Humpback whales, a forest fire from the air, medicine bundles in a museum in South Dakota are all felt through the same wise sensibility and yield understanding for the reader as well as the writer.

Synopsis:

Meditations on the land and heritage of the New England Abenaki Indians from award-winning native writer Joseph Bruchac.

Synopsis:

Poetry. Native American studies. Written over a period of twelve years, these beautiful poems of Abenaki Heritage invoke the natural world of New England and the poet's meditations upon it. The land and culture Bruchac celebrates is part of his family's continuing legacy. In a second section, the well-traveled poet views a variety of creatures and events; from these encounters it becomes apparent Bruchac is always at home, always centered, no matter where he is. Joseph Bruchac lives with his wife Carol and their two sons, James and Jesse, in Greenfield Center, New York. He is the author of over 100 volumes of poetry, fiction, memoir, children's stories, and anthology collections. His most recent novel, The Winter People, tells the story of the 1759 Roger's Raid on a native village from the point of view of the Abenaki people.
