“Charles Lovato is a poet obsessed with the past, his Indian heritage, his childhood, loved ones now gone,” says R. C. Gorman. “I say, without the Lovatos--confident, exultant, lonely, loving and wise--there would be no poems, no real life under the sun.” This collection of poems and images captures Lovato at his best.
The late Charles Lovato, a Santo Domingo Indian, was born in 1937 and lived in Sile, New Mexico. Of himself he said, “(I) had no formal training in many of the things I do, writing being one of them. I have learned first hand from the hills and rivers of shapes, sounds and quiet. Also trying to survive a system too rigid and demanding of precious, I have written of what I feel, what I see and know, that is all.”
