Joy Harjo, the first Native American U.S. poet laureate, provides a stunning memoir filled with wisdom and compassion. In her strong, deep voice, Harjo delivers a dreamy, lyrical narration. In calm, appealing tones she shares tales of her Muscogee/Creek ancestors, personal anecdotes and remembrances, her early love of words, the stories and poems told by her beloved mother, and her growing awareness of messages found in the natural world. Painful memories of abuse, addiction, and ugliness don't prevent Harjo from finding beauty in art, music, and poetry. She urges people to put away their cell phones and look into one another's eyes. She sings ancient songs, recites her poetry, and offers stirring messages of forgiveness, healing, and enlightenment. A quietly memorable listening experience. S.J.H.
