1917. Collection of verse from the American poet born to a family of evangelical Disciples of Christ, who transferred his crusading spirit to converting Americans to a love of poetry. His poetry explored American subjects and heroes, with patriotism and a mystic faith in the earth and nature. This volume-the first new collection since The Congo-brings together some of Linday's later poems. The contents includes, in addition to the title piece-which, by the way, won the Poetry Magazine's annual prize: To Jane Addams at the Hague; The Tale of the Tiger Tree; Our Mother Pocahontas; Mark Twain and Joan of Arc; Two Old Crows; The Ghosts of the Buffaloes; The King of the Yellow Butterflies; The Potatoes' Dance; and The Booker Washington Trilogy. A number of the selections are in the manner which Lindsay has made peculiarly his own-Poems to be read aloud he calls them. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
