About Ground, Wind, This Body:

"Ground, Wind, This Body follows the crooked river of a family history, from the first fringes of memory where war is a cradle, through poignant songs that document the emotional violence where emerges the translucent beauty of a rainbow after a storm."
—Joy Harjo

"In this book a brilliant new voice commands our attention. Tina Carlson’s poems take us by surprise, root us in their authenticity, and haunt us with their power."
—Margaret Randall
