An Eagle Nation
Carter Revard, Osage Indian poet, Rhodes scholar, and professor of medieval English literature, shares both this amazement and his amazing command of language in this first retrospective collection of 40 published and unpublished pieces written from 1970 to 1991.
"A collection that does what finely tuned poetry does best—putting human feeling and observation into focus and into print . . . A refreshingly unique perspective in the spirit of a rich oral tradition." —St Louis Post-Dispatch
"Like the trickster figure he admires, Revard assumes many forms and speaks in many accents." —Library Journal
