  In The Earth and the Dancing Man, Michael Robinson's poems speak of a uniquely Native sensibility, one in which the spiritual world is always present and consciously acknowledged.

  There is danger in ignoring its presence or taking these gifts for granted. Man's relationship to his spiritual double is a constant theme in Robinson's book of poem's and etchings. His words and images intertwine and hold together human life and human spiritual, for a brief moment, for us to witness.

In Touching the Serpent's Tail, Michael Robinson continues to explore the themes of the native perception of reality and the spiritual world that he introduce in previous books. The poems in this volume are darker, more personal and more idiosyncratic than in his previous works.
  The theme of the Hunter, the Priest and the agonies of a betrayed, exploited and abandoned Mother Earth appear throughout. Still developing the Native insights about the interrelationships of the natural world and its spiritual twin, Robinson is very explicit about the destructive activities, fueled by greed, that are destroying the world as we know it,
