Editorial Reviews


The Good, Red Road is a liberating collection of essays infused with the healing power of political activism, the lyricism of a skilled storyteller and a fundamental comprehension of the sacred. At once solemn and challenging, respectful and riotous, beth Brant's writing seeks and finds the heart of each subject she approaches. She establishes the line of continuity from Mohawk poet E. Pauline Johnson to the current generation of First Nations women writers. She asserts the holiness of lesbian sexuality as a physical prayer. She exposes new-agers as devotees of capitalism "cloaked in mystic terminology, dressed in robes an skins of ancient and Indigenous beliefs". Beth brand bridles at colonization in all its forms. Her writing is an incitement to resistance, a revolutionary invitation to a vital celebration of truth. -- Midwest Book Review
