Poetry. Few people are in motion as much and as often as American Indians. Travel is, of course, more than recreation or even a way of life for American Indian people. Journeys were and remain a way of staying in touch with our first mother, the Earth. They're a result of seeing home as not just a place surrounded by human-made walls, but anywhere we find ourselves between Earth and Sky...Lee Francis's ON THE GOOD RED INTERSTATE is firmly within the tradition of American Indian "tribal travel poetry," [passing] effortlessly back and forth between past and present, between east and west, and between the worlds of the author's ancestors--Indian and non-Indian alike"--Joe Bruchac. Lee Francis is the National Director of Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers.
