Crazy Brave is a memoir written by Joy Harjo. It is a powerful beautifully told story of her journey to become the poet we know her as today. Through struggles, hardship and pain, she evolves and finds her voice. A must for those who have been Joy Harjo supports for many years and the memoir provides great insight into Joy Harjo's heart and soul.

I first met Joy Harjo at a poetry reading at Fort Lewis College in the late 1970s and have been a fan of hers ever since, so it was with much anticipation that I read what will surely be only a first installment of her memoir, Crazy Brave. This book covers Harjo's childhood and it describes an uneasy early life, filled with abuse and neglect and also magical moments and the beginnings of a creative life. I am looking forward to reading future volumes of memoirs of this amazingly creative woman's life. Highly recommended.
