AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'These poems are essential listening to anyone who loves fine poetry and wishes to deepen their understanding of the essence of love, life, human compassion and the effects of injustice against modern survivors of the oldest continuous living culture in the world today. The poems also embrace concerns for the environment and the nuclear age.' (Source: inside cover)
