James Welch is a prominent author of novels and poetry featuring the American West. For a young man he is very strong. If Welch stays put in his own life, I think his strengths should develop; his voice is clear, laconic, and it projects a depth in experience of landscape, people, and history that conveys a rich complexity.

I'm giving this three stars, because I don't "get" modern poetry. It could be awful, could be brilliant, I wouldn't know. I didn't understand much of it, but was I supposed to? I don't know. I do know that I had to buy this book for school, but the University store wouldn't take it so I donated it to the local library, where I hope dozens discovered this book of poetry and were edified by it, but fear it may have been discarded. That's probably poetic in of itself. And really sad, but art! so I guess it's a win?

I love this book and studied it in an Indigenous lit class in Santa Fe with Simon Ortiz. The poems have a breath of their own. Amazing collection.
