Dustin Renwick tracked down that piece and more for his book, which explores Irvine's life from his pioneer upbringing in western Illinois to his years in the nation's capital. The poet excelled in his depictions of the Civil War, and the Chicago Tribune called some of Irvine's nature poems "nearly pure gold."
Beyond the Gray Leaf weaves biography and historical context with the rediscovered poems of this forgotten literary figure from 19th-century America.
