Hershman R. John

Books by This Author

I Swallow Turquoise for Courage (Sun Tracks)

Age Level: 16-18

Product Description: In poems that exude the warmth of an afternoon in the southwestern sun, Hershman John draws readers into a world both familiar and utterly new. Raised on a reservation and in boarding schools, then educated at a state university, John writes as a contemporary Diné (Navajo) poet. His is a new voice — one that understands life on both sides of the canyon that divides, but does not completely separate, the Diné people from their neighbors who live outside the reservation.
