Award-winning Chickasaw poet and novelist Linda Hogan explores her lifelong love of the living world and all its inhabitants.
"We want to live as if there is no other place," Hogan tells us, "as if we will always be here. We want to live with devotion to the world of waters and the universe of life." In offering praise to sky, earth, water, and animals, she calls us to witness how each living thing is alive I n a conscious world with its own integrity, grace, and dignity.
In Dwellings, Hogan takes us on a spiritual quest borne out of the deep past and offers a more hopeful future as she seeks new visions and lights ancient fires. A series of reflections and meditations on our relationship to the planet, Chickasaw poet and novelist Hogan's first work of nonfiction includes stories about bats, bees, porcupines, wolves, and caves—tales that honor the spirit of all living things, and which explore the human place in the natural world.
