The Sea of Grass

The Sea of Grass


Inspired by real people and events, The Sea of Grass is the story of the Pawnee Nation, which was shaped by the land, animals, and plants of the Central Plains. The long sweep of Indigenous history in the grasslands of North America comes alive through the folklore of a single family. Major events are told from a Pawnee perspective, and capture the oral tradition of ten generations of Echo-Hawk’s family. The historical novel tells the stories of the spiritual side of Native life, and gives voice to the rich culture and cosmology of the Pawnee Nation.

Author: Walter R. Echo-Hawk
