About the Author

He is the editor of The Sound the Stars Make Rushing Through the Sky: The Writings of Jane Johnston Schoolcraft, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press.


A remarkably rich and dense collection of poems. . . . Overall, the collection brings together the work of more than 80 poets from John Rollin Ridge to Alexander Posey to Lynn Riggs with complete bibliographies given for each poet represented in the collection. . . . This tremendously valuable book further erodes the idea that what may be called Native American literature is only to be found in the contemporary period.-- "American Literary Scholarship"
An excellent book, uniquely recovering materials of great importance in the field. The scholarship and research are exemplary and impressive: I learned a lot from it and was happy to learn it.-- "Carter Revard, Washington University in St. Louis"
A truly significant publication. This book fills a huge gap in our knowledge of the history of writing in the United States and Indian country. This is a book that I wish had been published decades ago, and scholars in a number of fields owe a debt of gratitude to Robert Dale Parker.-- "Michael A. Elliott, Emory University"
