Publisher Description:

"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. By confronting the struggles of working people through a vivid language grounded in the sense, Savageau is writing real history, which we urgently need in this age of quincentenary-style history. She leads us back to the "Home Country."
--Martin Espada, author of "Rebellion is the Circle of a Lover's Hands"
