Simon Ortiz delivers sad, funny, gritty stories that readers will want to read over and over.

 

 

Simon Ortiz is first of all a poet, and as such he is a very accomplished storyteller. “For me,” he says, “there has never been a conscious moment without story.” Here are stories of migrants working potato fields in Idaho and longing for home, a grandfather trying to understand why men go to the moon to bring back rocks, three women in a laundromat silently giving each other courage, a daring escape from boarding school, a father teaching his son to fly a kite, and white people who want to become Indians. These are sad, funny, gritty stories that readers will want to read over and over.
