Red Earth is an ecofeminist poetry collection offering meditations on place and the making of home amid the ever-increasing racket of society. It embodies a new planetary politics of making kin with plants, animals, the elements, and landscapes to find hope and healing in a time of state-sanctioned violence against the land and by proxy, its peoples. It is an ecofeminist act of solidarity with marginalized others and an artifact of social and environmental activism.
