HASH(0xa6397534) out of 5 stars Good Reason for Anger July 26 2012
By Charles B. Taylor - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These poems contain a good deal of anger and remind one of the late 1960's and the AIM movement. But why shouldn't there be anger? The same injustice toward Indians and gays continues today. You will also find in the book tender love poems and rituals of healing and putting to rest for those the author has seen hurt or lost. There is also sardonic humor. Read, learn, and enjoy.

HASH(0xa6397780) out of 5 stars Thoughtprovoking! Oct. 3 2006
By billie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've had the privilege of seeing Qwo-Li read several times in Seattle. Hir work is groundbreaking and inspiring. This book is a thought-provoking, oppression-ending read -- Powerful on all accounts.
HASH(0xa63979c0) out of 5 stars A Wonderful Collection March 23 2013
By Akira L. A, - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Driskill writes with profound thoughtfulness and beautiful, haunting imagery. Hir works are sprinkled with powerful cultural symbols. Some of these poems touch on difficult political topics, and evocative enough to bring tears. I absolutely recommend this title to any poetry lover.

HASH(0xa6397b64) out of 5 stars A Must Read Jan. 11 2006
By B. B. Chaud - Published on
Format: Paperback
The entire Earthworks series is groundbreaking--Driskill's contribution stands out as a fiercely political, unflinching, yet tender collection from an emerging talent. Strong imagery and tight composition leave no doubts that Driskill is one to watch. Very highly recommended.
