"New Poems of Native Nations," edited by Heid E. Erdrich. Assembled here is a breathtaking, necessary collection of poetry edited by Heid E. Erdrich featuring the voices of new Native American poets — a collection of music, songs of redemption and tragedy, of loss, hopefulness and the resilience of the indigenous spirit. These are poems of revolution and survival. Without question, this anthology is required reading.
