These poems offer a vision of history, Indian and colonial; stories of contemporary Indian life as current as headlines; and family poems emphasizing the rich cultural mix of the author's Laguna Pueblo-Sioux-Lebanese-Scots background. Allen always brings to her work a characteristic combination of rich discernment and critical intelligence.
