Native Idahoan and Utahan Gino Sky is the author of twelve books of poetry and short stories. His most known novel, Appaloosa Rising: The Legend Of The Cowboy Buddha, has been a cult novel since its publication in 1980.
During the Sixties he co-edited a literary magazine, Wild Dog, which published such writers as Allen Ginsberg, Diane DiPrima, Gary Snyder, Robert Creeley, Denise Levertov, Diane Wakoski, Richard Brautigan, Rosalie Sorrels, Amiri Baraka, and many more from the "Beat" and "Sixties" period of American Letters.
Wild Dog was considered by The New York Public Library as one of the finest underground mimeo magazines from that period. He worked in the Civil Rights Movement; The Grape Pickers Strike with Cesar Chavez in Delano, California.
His latest published book, Wild Dog Days, by Limberlost Press (limited editions of letterpress printing) is the history/story of Wild Dog, along with a healing poem for the Vietnam War. He is currently living in Salt Lake City with his wife, Barbara Jensen Sky, where he writes, draws, gardens, and maintains a woodworking shop.
