Skinwalking, Poems by Cole DeLaune
Plumbing the shadows of an accelerating Native American spiritual diaspora, this alternative history maps the sinuous intersection of race, passion, and geography. Invoking both the austere majesty of the Great Plains and the annals of urban glamour, Cole DeLaune's debut juxtaposes the metaphysical dislocation that belies unorthodox romance with an examination of Indian America's continuing erosion. Skinwalking is a classic tale of cultural collisions and erotic desperation.
