From the Inside Flap:

The lovely poems that Smelcer has collected, and careful linguistic work on Ahtna, will reveal that someone remembers, and will allow others too "to know existence and to marvel in it." —Noam Chomsky These beautiful, delicate, and lyrical poems remind me of Kenneth Rexroth's Japanese translations. —Maria Mazziotti Gillan Included in the sum is the history of who we are and who we were. John Smelcer's bilingual poems and his two dictionaries of endangered Alaska Native languages are a priceless gift to posterity.—Steven Pinker

About the Author:
