About this Item

The first book of poetry by the later director of the National Endowment for the Arts' Southwest Poetry Program. Inscribed by Claremon to Native American poet and novelist James Welch: "For Jim Welch, Amigo -- Neil Claremon." This is the simultaneous issue in wrappers. 1-1/2" triangular corner chip to lower rear cover; else near fine. Laid in is a typed letter signed telling Welch of a trip to Round Rock (photo enclosed) in the company of Simon Ortiz and also of a new book Claremon is working on (likely West of the American Dream). Also laid in is a photocopy of the "final draft" of his poem "At Canyon de Chelly." The letter and poem are folded; near fine. A nice association with the author of the poetry collection Riding the Earthboy 40 and the novels Winter in the Blood and Fools Crow, among others. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. Bookseller Inventory # 020171
