Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This is a collection of contemporary American Indian poetry in which the total effort is a result of the poets making the decisions about content rather than the editor. Foss provided the writers with the opportunity to select their own "best" or "favorite" for inclusion, avoiding perhaps the negative response that artists sometimes have to editors who choose the "wrong" poems! It is interesting to see the choices some made; at times I wished for a discerning editor, but the variety of material provided a cross-section of poetry being written today by American Indians.
