Ralph Salisbury's awards include a Rockefeller Bellagio Award; a Northwest Review Poetry Award, a Chapelbrook Award. His poems have appeared in Poetry, Poetry Northwest, The New Yorker and other journals. In choosing him as a finalist for the Oregon Book Award, judge Maxine Kumin wrote, "This is a poet dedicated to keeping his heritage alive. His book deserves a broad audience.

Now in his eighty-third year to heaven, Ralph Salisbury has gifted us with a volume of new and selected poems in which there is no diminution of powers but an amazing further blossoming... The poems of this volume make stunningly clear the ways in which Ralph Salisbury continues to model the traditional and modern (postmodern, if you will) roles of the poet as Cherokee humanist and indigenous cosmopolitan. -- Arnold Krupat, author of Red Matters: Native American Studies and All That Remains: Varieties of Indigenous Expression
