New Native American Writing
By (author) Eric Gansworth
Sovereign Bones by Eric Gansworth
Book DescriptionSovereign Bones is an exploration of indigenous peoples and how they have managed to maintain separate identities, in spite of their assimilation into the broader American culture. Edited by Eric Gansworth, this collection of original writing focuses on the key role that writers and visual artists have played in the struggle of native peoples to retain their individual identities. In personal essays, memoir, and historical reflections, each writer explores the ways in which they arrived at their work and how they have retained a traditional way of life in that work. Taken as a whole, Sovereign Bones is a testimony to the resilience of indigenous cultures and the integral contributions artists make to that survival. Featured authors include: Marijo Moore, Louise Erdrich, Alex Jacobs, Heid Erdrich, Maurice Kenny, Diane Glancy, Jeanette Weaskus, Simon Ortiz.

Echoing the muscular rhythms of the heartbeat, this work features poems that alternate between contraction and expansion. It explores the act of enduring: physically, historically, and culturally. With equal measures of humor, wisdom, polgnancy, and beauty, it mines a variety of individual and collective loss and recovery.
