from the manufacturer

Diane Glancys new book of verse experiments with biography as lyric. She shares the compelling story of her Cherokee fathers work in a meatpacking plant. She selects memories and images that dramatize his story, one that speaks to me because my Native grandfather also worked in the same meatpacking plant in Kansas City. This is poor peoples work, dangerous and physically difficult. This is the backdrop for Glancys book-length meditation on childrens resilience, families, loss, survival, and faith. This is one of Glancys most emotional and effective compositions. Diane Glancy is the award-winning author of 30 books of poetry, prose, and drama. Her film Dome of Heaven was shown at the Los Angeles Skins Film Festival and other national venues. She is professor at Azusa Pacific University. The speaker in Glancys work articulates the importance of knowing her past, of searching it out, of celebrating it, for it is this past that mends the loneliness and fragmentation that she feels in the present. By bringing it all in, all together, the speaker finds continual, albeit temporary, restoration. Molly McGlennen, Studies in American Indian Literature
