Song of the Owashtanong : Grand Rapids poetry in the 21st century / edited by David Cope.

Cope, David, 1948- (Added Author).


Summary: "This is an historic collection, the first of its kind for the Grand Rapids area of Western Michigan, a city with a long history of ancient mound builders, fishers striding in the great rapids of the Owashtanong (Grand) River, trappers, traders, lumbermen, the great logjam of 1883, the heritage of furniture making and its many factories. Song of the Owashtanong includes poetry that is firmly rooted in the people, soil and rivers of the area, as well as work that ranges from Bucharest and Gdansk to the coasts of Ireland, St. Petersburg, the battlefields of the Civil War and the swamps of Vietnam. Our work is less defined by a parochial sense of place, more akin to the notion of connectedness, extending from the city to the world beyond."--P. [4] of cover.
