Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One hundred fifty poems by seventy-five poets offer an inclusive collage of voices--protest poems of the Chicano farmworkers' movement, campfire cowboy songs, sacred Native American songs, and works by Willa Cather, Langston Hughes, Adrienne Rich, and other canonical figures----from a land where cultural collision is part of the rugged landscape.

Synopsis:

The imagery of the American West is chronicled over the course of its long and varied cultural heritage. Deming has selected 150 poems by 75 poets including protest poems of the Chicano farmworkers, campfire cowboy songs, sacred American Indian songs, and works by Willa Cather, Langston Hughes, Adrienne Rich, Walt Whitman and other canonical figures.
