Layli Long Soldier writes poetry that speaks of the Native American struggles, beautifully written with the emotion of a woman who is a mother, a daughter. She is a citizen of both the United States and the Oglala Sioux tribe. Soldier writes poems in a lyrical style that expresses her emotion not just with the words themselves, but with the way the words are placed on each page. Lovely and enlightening.
