The Sea of Grass tells the story of ten generations of the Echo-Hawk family, capturing the lives and times of real people shaped by the land, animals, and plants of the Central Plains and by the long sweep of Pawnee history in the grasslands. Their trials and tribulations provide a stirring tale of resilience and survival that captures the human spirit in Native North America.

“My hope is that The Sea of Grass will transform the way America thinks of Native homelands, history and peoples, and the ways we share our Indigenous heritage. Native America has its own voice and it’s time we tell our own stories.”

~ Walter Echo-Hawk
