Blue Horses Rush In

$15.00 each


This book is a gift to Tapahonso's granddaughters, and to all of us.


The name comes from the experience of the birth of Tapahonso’s granddaughter, Chamisa, whose heart “pounded quickly and we recognized/the sound of horses running:/the thundering of hooves on the desert floor.” Tapahonso dedicates Blue Horses to her granddaughters, “who show us over and over the instinctive delight of songs and stories with which we were all born” and also “for their great-grandparents, who remind us continually of our histories, and who have instilled in us, their children, the love of language upon which our lives have always depended.” This book is a gift to her granddaughters, and to all of us.
