The Woman Who Fell From The Sky

Book Cover: The Woman Who Fell From The Sky

Dancing children, the attempt to heal a broken life, rising moons, and blue horses turning into streaks of lightning are the images Harjo uses to spin her yarns, and her words are spellbinding.

Her talent is manifest in "A Postcolonial Tale": "Every day is a reenactment of the creation story. We emerge from dense unspeakable material, through the shimmering power of dreaming stuff."

. . .her writing is infused with a generosity of spirit that accounts for much of her appeal.
