Curtis, Edward S., Philip, Neil
This eloquent anthology gives a vivid insight into the world of Native Americans. The 60 poems in this collection -- chants, prayers, & songs -- are accompanied by over 40 unforgettable duotone photos by Edward S. Curtis, who in the early 20th cent. used a poet's eye to take over 40,000 photos of Native Americans at the point when their cultures were thought to be disappearing. The poems come from the woodlands, plains, deserts, & pueblos. They speak of love, of war, of the known & the unknowable. Today's new writing by Native Americans has revived interest in the song traditions that underlie their work. This anthology provides a selection of the best of those traditions.Curtis, Edward S. is the author of 'Earth Always Endures : Native American Poems', published 2001 under ISBN 9780788197949 and ISBN 0788197940.
