Overview

"Cheryl Savageau is a rare poet: a commanding storyteller with a strong sense of irony and a gift for the haunting image, who manages the feat of giving voice to her two cultures—Abenacki Indian and French Canadian—in words that makes those worlds sing. She pages homage to family, nature, identity, but does not romanticize.

—Martin Espada, author of Rebellion is the Circle of a Lover's Hands
