114pp. Octavo [21 cm] Chartreuse cloth covered boards with a black ink stamped title on the spine. Very good. The spine is discolored. The dust jacket is in Very good condition as well. A sticker announcing the book as a Pulitzer Prize winner has been adhered to the front panel. The edges of the rear panel are barely perceptibly foxed.
Turtle Island received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. From the jacket- "The nearly five dozen poems in the book range from the lucid, lyrical, almost mystical to the mythobiotic, while a few are frankly political. All, however, share a common vision: a rediscovery of this land and the ways by which we might become natives of the place, ceasing to think and act (after all these centuries) as newcomers and invaders."
