Description

Dark. Sweet. offers readers the sweep of LindaHogan's work--environmental and spiritual concerns, her Chickasaw heritage--in spare, elemental, visionary language.

From "Those Who Thunder":

Those who thunder
have dark hair
and red throw rugs.
They burn paper in bathroom sinks.
Their voices refuse to suffer
and their silences know the way
straight to the heart;
it's bus route number eight.
