Renny Golden

Blood Desert: Witnesses 1820–1880


In narrative poems that take us back to New Mexico in the nineteenth century, Renny Golden (Hour of the Furnaces) resurrects the spirits of native people and of those who came west. To read these poems is to hear the voices of Padre Martinez and Bishop Lamy, Geronimo and General Crook, Billy the Kid and Sister Blandina.


Blood Desert is history that turns into song, and readers are drawn into a chorus of voices that have gone unheardwomen, indigenous peoples, and more. What marvelous poetry, what powerful stories!”

Demetria Martinez, author of Mother Tongue
