"While Silex explores the historic and contemporary damage inflicted on Native American peoples, his poems shine with hope and regeneration as he comes to terms with his past, affirming the history and value of Native American culture.

"...Silex's poetry is forceful and effective." --Publishers Weekly

"[Silex] is a man who understands the responsibility of an artist to utilize all of the resources at his disposal. Reaching for excellence in the structure of the poem, in the structure of the story, substance and integrity become even more powerful when they have form and structure. Utilizing these two elements the poet/storyteller weaves a tapestry of many colors resulting in a cloth beautiful with meaning." --The Circle
