Hogan’s poems and stories here are part of her return to her land, culture and community.

 

Hogan’s journey home begins with “dreaming the old turtle back,” and the poems and stories here are part of her return to her land, culture and community. “These poems,” Hogan says, “grew out of the Oklahoma terrain resonant with the calls of frogs, my grandfather’s horse and wagon, my grandmother’s uncut braids wrapped about her head in the traditional Chickasaw manner, the firefly-lit nights we sat outside and heard stories, including the one of the gunstocks made from our stolen black walnut trees. In these poems live red land and light.”
