Overview

The Fire Bird by Gene Stratton-Porter, Gordon Grant, Lee Thayer

Proofed and corrected from the original edition for enjoyable reading. (Worth every penny spent!)

***

This is a narrative poem of sustained beauty and strength (and fully illustrated in color) It is typically American not only because it exhibits the sturdy qualities which mark all of Gene Stratton-Porter's work, but also because it is a tale of the first Americans, the Indians.

In musical flow of rhythm and word this poem of early Indian life tells the tragedy of a beautiful maiden whose love for a chieftain led her into jealous revenge. This revenge was the means of destroying not only her rival, but herself. In the telling there are passages of surpassing beauty, pictures of forest life and of Indian customs. The life drama is skillfully handled and the weaving in of the legend of the fire bird shows a knowledge of early American literature that is authoritative.

The author really found the words to bring out the feelings of the maiden in the book, first the pride and arrogance of being the first & foremost, then the burning desire for revenge upon her adversary, and finally the just rewards for her actions. Inspires deep thinking.
