John Trudell Archives releases
Follow The Lines.

This collection of lines, a series of 103 short poems, follows John Trudell's journey during his last year before returning to the Star Nation. The lines and subject matter are an intimate, raw and personal expression. Heartfelt portrait illustrations by Trudell's son, Wovoka, are thoughtfully placed throughout the book. We hope you will cherish this glimpse into the journey as much as we have.



Available for preorder July 18th.

Official release August 1st, 2023.

To celebrate this release, we are also offering a bundle of Living in Reality and The Journey Home.
