An elegy to and celebration of British Columbia's second-longest river, one at the centre of contemporary conversations about resource extraction and northern geographies, SKEENA is an assemblage of voices, stories and histories both about the river and from the river's perspective. As a single poetic narrative spanning more than eighty pages, this second collection of poetry by award-winning poet Sarah de Leeuw follows a Canadian tradition of long poems, weaving together poetic rendering of the river's perceptions with archival material that includes highway signs and historical newspapers, scientific reports and local lore, geological surveys and topographic maps. Mirroring a river's complex tributary structure and rendered in highly concentrated imagistic language and experimental description, SKEENA is a poly-vocal watershed of poetry, a book that unflinchingly demands humans understand the power of a river, the life and world of the Skeena River.
