Earth always endures: native American poems

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
This eloquent new anthology gives a vivid insight into the world of Native Americans. The chants, prayers, and songs in these pages vibrate with wisdom, joy, and terrible sadness. Underlying everything is a sense of the sacred - the wish, as one Yokuts poet says, to be "one with the world". The sixty poems in this collection are accompanied by over forty unforgettable duotone photographs by Edward S. Curtis. This stunning combination of word and image brings us closer than ever before to the heart of Native American traditions. The poems come from the woodlands, the plains, the deserts, and the pueblos. They speak of love, of war, of the known and the unknowable. Today's flowering of new writing by Native Americans has revived interest in the song traditions that underlie their work. This anthology aims to give a representative selection of the best of those traditions, from Maine to California.
