Turtle Island received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. From the jacket- "The nearly five dozen poems in the book range from the lucid, lyrical, almost mystical to the mythobiotic, while a few are frankly political. All, however, share a common vision: a rediscovery of this land and the ways by which we might become natives of the place, ceasing to think and act (after all these centuries) as newcomers and invaders."
