Reviews

"This book is wrought with wisdom, wild mares, whooping cranes, doves - all the animals come singing. The poems in Sweet's Palominos Near Tuba City are stylistically certain, surefire, bringing forth earthly stories from creation to contemporary common ground, virtually bracing us to stand like lightning rods, indisputable, holding ground, waiting - ready. A deep beauty.--Allison Adele Hedge Coke, author of Streaming & Burn "Denise Sweet is one of our most important Native poets and has been for a long while. Her brilliant new collection Palominos Near Tuba City, is large and beautiful and reveals the fullness of her talents."--Adrian C. Louis, author of Random Exorcisms In Palominos Near Tuba City, Denise Sweet invites us to consider how we might live 'within harvested stories.' This rich collection is filled with the histories, memories, and landscapes of Indigenous peoples from Guatemala to Taos to Lake Superior; filled as well with smart, funny, and sometimes poignant accounts of Native lives and Native resistance. Whether describing the 'prairie painted tender and mute, ' the 'white wings of ice and snow, ' or the 'turkey feathers and greasepaint grins of mascots, the author finds 'new words to old songs, ' offers a unique expression of what she calls 'that essential thirst for justice.' Let this collection awaken your own thirst, then drink deeply of these satisfying poems.--Kimberly Blaeser, author of Apprenticed to Justice, Wisconsin Poet Laureate 2015-16 "This is poetry of motion and action. In each of Denise Sweet's poems we are urged by example to run, to search, to map and remap our lives and lands, to grin, to tease, to learn, to question, to protest, and to remember. Most of all, these poems ask us to sing and to listen for the singing of creation."--Heid E. Erdrich, Editor of New Poets of Native Nations "This book is wrought with wisdom, wild mares, whooping cranes, doves - all the animals come singing. The poems in Sweet's Palominos Near Tuba City are stylistically certain, surefire, bringing forth earthly stories from creation to contemporary common ground, virtually bracing us to stand like lightning rods, indisputable, holding ground, waiting - ready. A deep beauty."--Allison Adele Hedge Coke, author of Streaming & Burn "Denise Sweet is one of our most important Native poets and has been for a long while. Her brilliant new collection Palominos Near Tuba City, is large and beautiful and reveals the fullness of her talents."--Adrian C. Louis
