Description:

In Buffalo Dance, Frank X Walker innovatively blurs the lines between poetry, fiction, and history to tell the story of the infamous Lewis and Clark expedition from the point of view of Clark's slave, York. Breathing lyrical life into a historical figure, these poems vividly present York's struggles and narrate a physical journey from the plantation to the great Northwest and a spiritual journey from a humble servant to a man yearning for fulfillment and freedom. The result is a celebration of the beauty and wisdom long suppressed but finally emerging from one man's soul. Book jacket.
