“Joy Harjo is a giant-hearted, gorgeous and glorious gift to the world.  Her belief in art, in spirit, is so powerful, it can't help but spill over to us -- lucky readers. Wildly passionate and honest as a hound, Crazy Brave invites us into a whole new way of seeing -- deeper, less cluttered, and vastly more courageous than our own.  It’s a book for people who want to re-fall in love with the world.” 
-Pam Houston
"If you loved The Woman Warrior, if you lovedSula, you must read Crazy Brave." 
-Nikki Giovanni
"Joy Harjo has always been able to see with more than her eyes. Her
writing is a testament to this gift. Her memoir honors her own journey as
well as those who fell along the wayside. Her hero's journey is a gift for
all those struggling to make their way."
-Sandra Cisneros
"Here is the life that brought Joy Harjo to poetry -- a life in which 'crazy' means close to necessary risk, close to herself, close to prophecy, and close to love. This book reminds us again that poems are not luxuries and that coming to them can offer not only grace but survival."
-Honor Moore
