Native People’s Review of Crazy Brave

One of Native America’s strongest voices, poet and musician Joy Harjo has finally told her own story in this poetic memoir. Like her rich poetry, this book brims with lyrical word pictures, glimpses of Harjo’s childhood and time in Indian boarding school; her marriages, lovers and children; her struggles with alcohol and her Native identity; and coming to grips with the panic attacks that plagued much of her adult years. In between the swirls of the whirlwind, Harjo gifts the reader with a sense of her inspiration, her terrors, and the events great and small that shaped her talent.
