Joseph Bruchac lives in the Adirondack mountain foothills town of Greenfield Center, New York, in the same house where his maternal grandparents raised him. Much of his writing draws on that land and his Native American ancestry. Although his northeastern American Indian heritage is only one part of an ethnic background that includes Slovak and English blood, those Native roots are the ones by which he has been most nourished.
“Within these pages, readers will find an incantation of attention, patience, and what endures through the generations: a fierce love of place.” —Terry Tempest Williams, The Hour of Land
“Bruchac's A Year of Moons weaves seasonal observations, remembrances, and stories into each chapter, engaging the reader's imagination, heart, and senses, and then wraps up each one with beautiful haiku. A journey not to be missed!” —Traci Sorell, Author of Pow Wow Day
