From Library Journal
Navajo poet and English professor Tapahonso here celebrates the importance of conversation and the spoken word among her people. Driving back and forth between her parents' home in Shiprock, New Mexico, and her current home in Lawrence, Kansas, this gifted writer recalls snatches of family memories and tribal stories through the intermingled forms of poetry, songs, prayers, and anecdotes. Ranging across Navajo history, this collection in English and Navajo is warm and witty. Tapahonso states that for people like herself who live away from their homelands, "writing is the means for... restoring our spirits to the state of hozho , or beauty, which is the basis of Navajo philosophy." This book is a clear reflection of that sentiment. Recommended for most collections.

"The stories and poems of this book come from a place of long horizons and a huge sky. . . . Luci Tapahonso lovingly uses memory and story to put back the world with a faith in what is gone, but not lost."—Weber Studies
"A music that rises from deep roots."—Beloit Poetry Journal
"Ms. Tapahonso speaks the observed and spiritual world into existence."—The New York Times Book Review
"There is no real distinction between her long-lined, exploratory 'poems' and dense, metaphorically rich 'essays.' Both capture the voice of a storyteller steeped in traditional ways but fluent as well in contemporary expression....Tapahonso provides us with a true bridge to her culture and its spiritual insights."—Booklist
