Praise

“Luis Rodríguez is a poet prophet for our times.”
—Sandra Cisneros, author of A House of My Own: Stories From My Life

Powerful from start to finish, Rodriguez’s book celebrates Xicanx culture and wisdom while calling for much-needed global healing. A thoughtful and radically provocative collection.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Former Los Angeles Poet Laureate, Luis J. Rodriguez reflects on a lifetime of experiences, wisdom and healing, illuminating the intersections of the personal, spiritual, and historical. His is the ‘story of the ‘other’ Los Angeles,’ a love song to the city, Xicanx culture, its influence around the world, and the spirit of revolution full of risk, but also one full of triumph. He says ‘this is not about avoiding trouble, it’s about getting into the right kind of trouble.’ A poet at heart, Rodriguez rightly claims that ‘as long as the world needs changing, we’ll need poetry.’ There is still much left to change and the captivating work contained here is a testament to the possibilities of our will to make a difference.“ 
—Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, author of Children of the Land

“In a climate fraught with division and increased in-fighting amidst the tension, From Our Land to Our Land is a welcome and generous call to recognize the myriad gifts peoples across the world have contributed to our present and celebrate that which we share in order to imagine where we as a society go from here. Tracing connections between language, cultures, and how one chooses to identify, whether Native or non-Native, to current social, environmental, and political concerns, Luis J. Rodriguez reminds us there are healers still at work in this world, and yes, poets walk among them.“ 
—Abigail Chabitnoy, author of How to Dress a Fish
