Songs, Blood Deep, Poems
Download Full Text
As graceful and intricately rooted as prairie grass, Gwen Nell Westerman’s poetry honors and nourishes traditional ways of being, 'the sustained symmetry of songs,' a lifeblood that runs through generations of women, from grandmothers of long ago to granddaughters of a yet-to-be-seen future as real as the present and past. Songs, Blood Deep weaves English and Dakota language and spirit with personal memories and tribal histories in a collection that is lyrical and profound, a poetic gift to be treasured.
