Okie Chronicles based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Ms. Harrison returns in her second published collection of poetry, Okie Chronicles, to weave tales of charm, wit, adventure and spunk. Okie Chronicles follows the lives of several Oklahomans before, during, and in the difficult times after the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. This book illuminates the history of the American southwest in poignant and clear detail, with visual imagery and captivatingly real stories of everyday life. Finally, there is a collection of poems worthy of being called historically accurate, while still gripping and fascinating. If you love the detail and fluidity of prose, you will love Okie Chronicles. If you are an ardent fan of poetry of the highest standards, this book is also ideal. If you have a love of history and a respect for learning how we became who we are today, then Okie Chronicles is the best you can get. Mom has been kind enough to send me a copy of the book. It is just as fine and spectacular as her first book, Stereopticon. If you have enjoyed her work before, I encourage you to order a copy of the newest book. It is very different from Stereopticon, but just as gripping.
