4 stars – It was really good

This was my first Joy Harjo book but it won’t be my last. Her poetry was powerful, rich, and filled with history. With each poem she brings a piece of her family history and the history of the Native Americans to create powerful poems that resonate in your soul. 

One of the great things about listening to this audiobook was that Harjo herself narrated it. You got to feel her emotion portrayed with each line and it really made the poems more powerful. I highly recommend this audiobook if you are looking for powerful poetry filled with history and meaning.
