"The poems in Songs, Blood Deep hold us in an abbiding clarity of being and calm, transporting us through songs and story, to sunrises, memory-elders, radiant beings, and connected flights of language. There is a continueing wisedom here, running Dakota-deep in a breadth of expressions and distilled images of continuing bonds of generations of relations. This is an exquisite collection, reminding us of the people and lande these poems aide for and from," - Gordon Henry, author of Spirit Matter: White Clay, Red Exits, Distant Others
