Synopsis

Rear cover notes: "The Black Hawk Songs is both a memorial to the lost tribes of American Indians and an attempt to transform the surviving spirit of the Indian into lasting art. The story it tells is of lands lost, of men broken, of tribes decimated. It is not a new story - it is the manner of telling that makes this book a most painful reading experience and yet at the same time a most exhilarating one. Rage and indignation there are in these poems, but there is also a radiant spirit and a profound reverence for life...."
