The Feathered Heart

by Mark Turcotte

This revised and expanded edition of The Feathered Heart, Mark Turcotte's celebrated collection of Native American poetry, brings traditional oral culture to print. Turcotte is a storyteller and singer. Torn, painful, vibrant, and full of hope, his poetry weaves together the multilayered and textured fabric of contemporary Native American urban and rural existence. Appropriately, each poem in The Feathered Heart possesses a deeply lyrical quality. Raw emotion echoes in Turcotte's voice, in his verse, in the things he sees. "Ten Thousand Thousand Bones", for example, "a poem about the desecration of Native American burial sites and objects by archeologists", is dedicated "to an ancient woman taken from the Earth near New Lenox, Illinois in the winter 1993/94".
