Available in paperback only.  Simon Ortiz (Acoma),  Woven Stone. (1992), 1998.

While standing before a group of young Laguna children at Laguna Elementary School one day, and speaking in both the Acoma language and English, Ortiz realized that what he does as a writer, teacher and storyteller is to “demystify language.” Woven Stone encompasses three of Ortiz’s previously published works—Going for the Rain (1976), A Good Journey (1977), and Fight Back: For the Sake of the People, For the Sake of the Land (1980)—and more than three decades of poems and narrative writing that is an intimate expression of his commitment both to his art and to land, culture, and community. This collection is a fine opportunity for those not already familiar with it to see writing of one of the most remarkable poets of our time.
