Poetry. Native American Studies. "Trevino Brings Plenty's tales focus on Native survival in the face of modern American displacement. He is a young Indian Odysseus, head up, going forward strongly, only occasionally getting distracted by urban sirens singing their songs of destruction. A dynamic, new Indian voice."—Adrian C. Louis
