Bone Dance

New and Selected Poems, 1965-1993

SERIES:
The University of Arizona Press
A prolific voice in Native American writing for more than twenty years, Rose has been widely anthologized, and is the author of eight volumes of poetry. Bone Dance is a major anthology of her work, comprising selections from her previous collections along with new poems. The 56 selections move from observation of the earth to a search for one's place and identity on it. In an introduction written for this anthology, Rose comments on the place each past collection had in her development as a poet.

"Rich in poems which enhance our awareness of the human complexity of our social and moral dilemmas." —Book Review Digest

"There is a whisper in the wind among the chapters . . . and a singing rain beyond the window." —American Indian Culture Research Journal
[Rose] weaves a seamless tapestry, an exquisite melding of image, language, and rhythm with an irrepressible sense of urgency.' —Chris Faatz, Seattle Weekly
Wendy Rose is the author of several volumes of poetry, including Now Poof She Is Gone and The Halfbreed Chronicles.
