This is more than a book of poetry. Joy Harjo travels through many worlds, across many boundaries. Mvskoke tribal song and storytelling, Navajo and Hawaiian philosophies, the music of the Middle East, and the poetry of western civilizations can all be heard in these songs and stories that bear witness to the cruelties of history and the miracles of human kindness at the border between this century and the next.
