These beautiful poems of Abenaki heritage invoke the natural world of New England and the poet’s meditations upon it. The land and culture Bruchac celebrates is part of his family’s continuing legacy. In a second section, the well-traveled poet views a variety of creatures and events; from these encounters it becomes apparent Bruchac is always at home, always centered, no matter where he is.

Bruchac’s poems invite pause and meditation: from the poem, Ndakinna, that gives the book its name to a turtle’s perilous adventure in “Snapping Turtle on the Expressway.” They are at once peaceful and suspenseful, poignant and hopeful.

Joseph Bruchac live in Greenfield Center, New York. He is the author of over 100 volumes of poetry, fiction, memoir, children’s stories and anthology collections.
