The Star Medicine
Praise for Murielle Borst Tarrant.
Murielle Borst Tarrant is a one woman earth cruise to the infinite and so is her work! - Linda Hogan, Chickasaw Nation. Author of Mean Spirit, a winner of the Oklahoma Book Award, the Mountains and Plains Book Award, and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
Muriel Borst Tarrent takes story-telling to another realm to explore what is possible in her new work, THE STAR MEDICINE.
She gives to her reader knowledge of the importance of native mythology, not only with a taste of the past, but of the future.
She follows myth beyond the boundaries of what can and cannot be done.
Muriel is half-visionary, half-story-teller. In her braided work, she goes to the stars to bring back their magic to the earth, then gives it back to the sky. - Diane Glancy, Cherokee author of Pushing the Bear, and winner of the American Book Award.
Murielle Borst Tarrant is a daring, creative performer, writer, director and now novelist!
Watch her, as she carries forth the gifts that have come through.
- Joy Harjo, Mvskoke poet, musician, writer, performer and artist
