A “Blood Moon” is a phrase that describes the red corona that appears around the moon during an eclipse. It is a physical manifestation of an event that appears strange and frightening, and is also natural. In Blood Moon, Jarvis writes multisensory natural and spiritual metaphors to explore the struggle of contemporary peoples to retain their homeland, ancestry, and watershed in an encroaching, overpowering metropolitan world.
