Eric Gansworth explores the act of enduring: physically, historically, and culturally. A member of the Haudenosaunee, Gansworth expresses the tensions experienced by members of a marginalized culture struggling to maintain tradition within a much larger dominant culture.With equal measures of humor, wisdom, poignancy, and beauty, Gansworths poems mine the infinite varieties of individual and collective loss and recovery.

Seventeen paintings complement his poetry, creating a dialogue between word and image steeped in the tradition of the Haudenosaunees mythic world. A Half-Life of Cardio-Pulmonary Function is the most recent addition to Gansworths remarkable body of work chronicling the lives of upstate New Yorks Indian communities.
