The Sky Clears; Poetry of the American Indians.
Day, A. Grove
More than 200 authentic poems and lyrics of North American Indians are compiled in this anthology. The poetry was translated from tribal languages into English over the past 100 years by students of Indian language, lore, and life. The poems, taken from about 40 North American tribes, include songs of Eskimos of the Arctic coasts, totem-pole makers of the Northwest, desert dwellers of the Southwest, horse nations of the Plains, hunters of the Eastern woodlands, and the Mayas and Aztecs of ancient Mexico. Historical background information to help the reader understand and appreciate these compositions as worthy contributions to American literature is included. (JH)
