Description


"Animals dream about the things they do in the day time just like people do. If you want sweet dreams, you've got to live a sweet life." So says Loyd Peregrina, a handsome Apache trainman and latter-day philosopher. But when Codi Noline returns to her hometown, Loyd's advice is painfully out of her reach. Dreamless and at the end of her rope, Codi comes back to Grace, Arizona to confront her past and face her ailing, distant father. What the finds is a town threatened by a silent environmental catastrophe, some startling clues to her own identity, and a man whose view of the world could change the course of her life. Blending flashbacks, dreams, and Native American legends, Animal Dreams is a suspenseful love story and a moving exploration of life's largest commitments. With this work, the acclaimed author of The Bean Trees and Homeland and Other Stories sustains her familiar voice while giving readers her most remarkable book yet.

Comments on Rain Shadow

"The poems come from solitude and close study of the immediate world with things in it, living and dying.  Richard Taylor makes this exalted state seem perfectly natural."       

- Maurice Manning

" Rain Shadow contains some of Taylor's strongest work. And though it's his nature poems I love best here, there are pleasures on every page."

- Jeff Worley

"This book explains much, / including how each of us / becomes each. The mortality of people, the immortality of suffering. The interaction of shadow and light."

-Katerina Stoykova-Klemer
