Synopses & Reviews
Kenneth Rosens haunting volume of poetry proves that the powerful and moving voice of Native Americans must be heard. More than two hundred poems embrace anguish, pride, and hope, representing twenty-four tribal affiliations, including, Sioux, Pawnee, Choctaw, Seminole, Laguna Pueblo, Cherokee, Anishinabe, Mohawk, Seneca, and Seminole. An Indian leader once asked a U.S. president: What visions, under the white mans way, are offered that will cause todays children to want tomorrow to come?” In a sense, each poem in this volume is an attempt to confront and answer that very question.
Notable for its diversity….Highly recommended.
Notable. . . . A reader finds a feeling for the spiritual, the land and specific locale, a sense of history, peaceful ideal alongside violent reality.
This haunting volume of poetry proves yet again that the powerful and moving voice of Native Americans must be heard.
