Dragonfly, Walking Stick

Judy R. Smith

Dragonfly, Walking Stick examines the difficult and inspiring introduction of Algonquin Indian tribes to the English Colonists. Weaving the spiritual worlds of Native Americans and English Christians, the novel celebrates the creation of fertile hybridity as it confronts the difficulty of such rich mixtures finding acceptance in the seventeenth-century Colonial world.

 

JUDY R. SMITH is a Professor of American Literature at Kenyon College. Her first novel, Yellowbird (Lewis-Clark Press, 2007) won the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas Award. Her work interrogates the complicated relationships among and between Northeastern Indian tribes and Colonists and the reverberations that continue to echo in America.
