Synopsis

Keen observation and vivid imagery mark this collection of poems by a Chickasaw Indian. Linda Hogan's subjects are often drawn from events of everyday life―gathering wood, watching her daughters sleep, witnessing changes in the weather, awaiting nightfall. But beneath the surface of these daily happenings runs a powerful undercurrent, a sureness of life's basic rhythms and a sensitivity to the pressures of survival.
