Five decades of work are reflected in this expansive collection. Beginning with Kenny’s earliest work and continuing with poems from his next eighteen books, many long out of print, the book follows the career of this renowned Native American writer. Also included are thirty new and uncollected poems.
Maurice Kenny is visiting professor at the State University of New York at Potsdam. He lives in Saranac Lake in New York State’s Adirondack Mountains. His most recent books, both from the University of Michigan Press, are Tortured Skins & Other Fictions and In the Time of the Present.
