Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light: Fifty Poems for Fifty Years

By Joy Harjo
W. W. Norton
160 pages

“In this gemlike volume, Harjo selects her best poems from across fifty years, beginning with her early discoveries of her own voice and ending with moving reflections on our contemporary moment. Generous notes on each poem offer insight into Harjo’s inimitable poetics as she takes inspiration from Navajo horse songs and jazz, reckons with home and loss, and listens to the natural messengers of the earth.”
