Description:

Jeff Streeby masterfully creates the world of Sunday Creek in poetry and prose. Sunday Creek is a place vividly populated by Native Americans, mountain men, miners, highwaymen, homesteaders, cowboys, slatterns and orators-saints and sinners from all walks of life. This provocative work is an original, a daring work in form and substance. From the gritty days of settlement and for another hundred and fifty years, these tales-many inspired by actual events and real people-reveal the interwoven relationships among the townspeople and a community emerges, reflective of the complex histories of those who populated the American West. With Streeby's careful scholarship and skillful storytelling, the chorus of voices sings with authenticity and the reader becomes a traveler to a place not soon forgotten.

My Thoughts: 

This  book was a great read.  It's very poetry about various people.  It was great to read what the author had to tell us through these poems.  We learn about what some of the towns people had gone through back then.  Definitely takes you on a great journey to learn about people and things they dealt with.  I would definitely recommend this book to all poetry lovers and those who love historical books.
