From the Preface- "The remarkable story of California's Talisman Press is necessarily the biography of Robert Greenwood and, to a lesser extent, of his long-time partner, the late Newton Baird. Greenwood started his career as a young poet, a decidedly minor one. (I am sure that he will agree.) But his mentor was poet Alan Swallow, who also just happened to be a one-man publishing operation."
