A powerful debut by indigenous performance poet Janet Marie Rogers, Splitting the Heart throbs with the vitality of a Native drum and wail's with a warrior's wisdom. Both Mohawk warrior and Westcoast woman, Rogers' poems speak of the trials of her people, balanced by exquisite love poems, transcendent in their earthiness. The book includes a CD with 10 pieces performed by the poet.
