This outstanding anthology of poetry and fiction features the voices of a range of Indian women such as Mourning Dove and Ella Cara Deloria who wrote in the 1920s and 1930s, established contemporary women writers such as Leslie Marmon Silko, Beth Brant, Paula Gunn Allen, Louise Erdrich and Linda Hogan, and their younger and no less talented sisters such as Shaunna McCovey, Linda Boyden, MariJo Moore, Deborah Miranda, and Inés Hernández-Ávila. Grouped into four broad thematic categories—“Stories of Birth and Creation,” “Women’s Rites of Passage: Power and Knowledge,” “Women’s Rituals: Men, Women, Family, and Kinship,” and “Women’s Mysteries: Regeneration”—the more than 50 poems and stories here follow the cycles of women’s lives.
