With sympathetic characters and stylistic simplicity, Ms. Cook-Lynn reveals the endurance of a people subjected to centuries of violent Diaspora and displacement.' By turns humorous, poetic, and poignant The Power of Horses
is a welcome addition to the growing body of Native American literature.
The New York Times Book Review
Her briefest sketches in The Power of Horses
, such as 'Mahpiyato' and 'Bennie,' demand to be read aloud. Enigmatic, poetic, they possess a true sense of spiritual mystery.
