Book Description

Jan. 1 1994 Sun Tracks (Book 27)
A prolific voice in Native American writing for more than twenty years, Rose has been widely anthologized, and is the author of eight volumes of poetry. Bone Dance is a major anthology of her work, comprising selections from her previous collections along with new poems. The 56 selections move from observation of the earth to a search for one's place and identity on it. In an introduction written for this anthology, Rose comments on the place each past collection had in her development as a poet.

"Rich in poems which enhance our awareness of the human complexity of our social and moral dilemmas." —Book Review Digest

"There is a whisper in the wind among the chapters . . . and a singing rain beyond the window." —American Indian Culture Research Journal

Product Description

From Booklist

"Too city-stupid to know any better, I am left with the paper and pen for my magic," Rose, a Hopi, writes as she realizes, at 45, that the old Native American teachings and ceremonial ways are strong. Her poems trace her evolving linkage not only to Native American issues but to related concerns on a global level. She explores her "half breedness" not as a condition of genetics, ancestry, or race but as a condition of history, a result of cross-cultural experience, of dislocations, reunions, and choices. She sees "no more important movement than that of indigenous peoples and their supporters around the earth" and accordingly laments the $3,000 sale of 19 American Indian skeletons to a museum and howls in horror at skulls and bones excavated from a mission's adobe walls: "They built the missions with dead Indians." Brutally powerful in all ways political and personal. Whitney Scott --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

"[Rose] weaves a seamless tapestry, an exquisite melding of image, language, and rhythm with an irrepressible sense of urgency." —Chris Faatz, Seattle Weekly

3.0 out of 5 stars Competive Force March 25 2000
Format:Paperback
Wendy Rose's "Bone Dance" has been an inspirational insight into the life of Native Americans. Imagery and musicality combine to elicit an internal competition for the reader. In comparison to her other works, such as "Halfbreed Chronicles" and "Going to War with All My Relations," "Bone Dance" shows that her strength grows with age. She speaks with truth and vigor, but at times lacks the edge of her earlier poems. Wendy Rose serves as a competive force in the voice of Native Americans and I recommend this book for all who have an interest in both Native American Literature and personal struggles in finding their identity.
