The author tells his story--the story of his family, of Onondaga among Tuscaroras, of Native folks everywhere. From the horrible legacy of the government boarding schools, to a boy watching his siblings leave and return and leave again, to a young man fighting to be an artist who balances multiple worlds. Gansworth shatters the racial slur "Apple" and reclaims it in verse and prose and imagery that truly lives up to the word heartbreaking.
