Joseph Bruchac lives in the Adirondack mountain foothills town of Greenfield Center, New York, in the same house where his maternal grandparents raised him. Much of his writing draws on that land and his Native American ancestry. Although his northeastern American Indian heritage is only one part of an ethnic background that includes Slovak and English blood, those Native roots are the ones by which he has been most nourished.

“Joseph Bruchac is among our wisest and most enduring storytellers. His voice, his flute, and his tales are grace notes. A Year of Moons speaks to the cyclic nature of Western Abenaki home ground. Within these pages, readers will find an incantation of attention, patience, and what endures through the generations: a fierce love of place.” –Terry Tempest Williams, Author of The Hour of Land
 
“Bruchac’s A Year of Moons weaves seasonal observations, remembrances, and stories into each chapter, engaging the reader's imagination, heart, and senses, and then wraps up each one with beautiful haiku. A journey not to be missed!” –Traci Sorell, Author of Powwow Day
 
“I really appreciate A Year of Moons. It is, in my opinion, not only a summing up of a year, but in many ways a thoughtful glimpse into the world of an extremely talented writer and philosopher. In particular, he makes the Adirondacks vivid and near personal for this Mississippi Delta swamp rat.”
– Geary Hobson, Author and Poet
