A Calm and Normal Heart: Stories
From Oklahoma to California, the heroes of A Calm & Normal Heart are modern-day homesteaders, adventurers, investigators—seeking
out new places to call their own inside a Nation to which they do not
entirely belong. A member of the Osage tribe, author Chelsea T. Hicks’
stories are compelled by an overlooked diaspora inside America: that of
young Native people.
