A Quick Brush of Wings

Mary TallMountain

"Mary TallMountain weaves into her writing the story of Western civilization's "progress" and the discordant notes it brought to the way of life along the Yukon and within her own life. She retains the memory of her native culture and carries its spirit on in her poems to the many people who are turning with reverence to appreciate and protect `Turtle Island.'"

Encounters with the Photography of Dorothea Lange; Introduction by Ben Clarke

Ben Clarke
Dorothea Lange, one of the founders of documentary photography, is best known for her Depression Era work for the Farm Security Administration. Her iconic portrait, the Migrant Mother, has been reproduced thousands of times. Her moving images of Midwestern farm families forced off the land by drought and the corporate takeover of farming were used in the struggle to establish government social programs and collective bargaining rights for workers in the thirties.

Back to the Streets

George Wynn

In Back to the Streets, George Wynn tells stories of a nation’s poor. Bracing, realistic, archetypal, with a steady-handed objectivity, the writing follows the way cut by Dos Passos and Steinbeck. The vivid sketches gathered in this collection offer glimpses of lives led inside the 21st century Depression.
“George Wynn writes with toughness, sympathy, and great humor about difficult things and dire situations, and wonderfully about the redeeming qualities of literature and human kindness. He makes invisible people visible, and throws light in the darkest of places.”
