About the Author
Oliphant's new book-length poem...is an attempt, in Texas terms, to recreate a work along the lines of William Carlos Williams' Paterson, that is, a poem that relates the history of a place from the ground up from origins to now.... Serious readers of serious poetry will find this book worth their attention. They will rediscover too, as I did, the seminal importance of Stephen F. Austin in the visionary history of the state.
--Don Graham, Dallas Times Herald
