A single-volume republication of two early full-length collections by Adrian C. Louis that have been out of print for over a decade: Fire Water World (1989) and Among the Dog Eaters (1992). As noted by N. Scott Momaday, "Adrian C. Louis reaches to the core of contemporary Native American life. An equation of anger and survival, of acceptance and defiance brought into delicate balance. It is work of profound honesty and ought to be read by everyone who cares to know the American heart." No other contemporary poet has taken such an unflinching and explosive look at the intersection of the sacred and the profane. The re-release of these titles is a literary event to be witnessed and celebrated.
