About the author:
Charles Nauman's poetry has recently appeared in Perigee, Diagram, Prairie Winds and in the acclaimed "A Cadence of Hooves" anthology. His creative non-fiction has been published in the Iowa Review, and his novel, Pola, was published by Plain View Press in March 2011.
As a film writer and director, Nauman's films have ranged from the feature, Johnny Vik (honored at Cannes, Locarno and the Prix L'Age D'Or in Brussels) to the experimental Sitting Bull's Bones with Stan Brakhage. His Tahtonka was an American Film Festival Blue Ribbon winner and the "Critic's Choice" for a BBC-TV reprise. In 2006 his film "Tarahumara: Festival of the Easter Moon," was selected for several international festivals including Bilan du film ethnographique, Musee de l'Homme, Paris.
Charles and his wife, Grete Bodøgaard, live part time above the Arctic Circle in Grete's hometown of Bodø, Norway. In the USA, Charles and Grete
(a tapestry artist) live and work together in their live-in studio, a renovated bank building in South Dakota.
Much of the poetry in Nauman's collection relates to the four years Grete and Charles lived as caretakers on a buffalo ranch adjoining two of the
largest herds of buffalo on this continent. "It was a place where we could literally see buffalo and coyotes from our bedroom window," Nauman said.
