Lush and evocative imagery
Indian Country Today
A finely crafted literary work that is also a manifesto addressing contacts and conflicts in the history of Indian-white relations. . . . Recommended.
Her manifesto offers readers valuable lessons in both poetic craft and self-exploration. It is enjoyable as well as masterful in its stance, gaze, and honesty.
While Rose's earlier voice was searching and political, brimming with the anger of the disenfranchised, her new voice is knowing, rich with facts recovered from her research, in places empathetic, and always pointedly personal. . . . In many ways, her story is our story, the story of anyone whose mixed' ancestry includes the powerful and the powerless and leaves us wondering where we stand.
