HARPERCOLL

“An unexpected story and a gem of a book.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 

The incomparable Campbell McGrath, whomOutside magazine calls, “A writer who could help save poetry from academia and get the rest of us reading it again,” delivers an astounding work:Shannon, an epic poem that traces the remarkable journey of the youngest member of the Lewis and Clark expedition. TheKansas City Star praises Shannon as, “A luminescent narrative…a myth of American character before its corruption,” and Campbell McGrath—Poet Laureate, Guggenheim Fellowship, Pushcart Prize, and three-time Academy of American Poets Prize winner—proves once again to be truly an “everyman poet” who channels the spirit of Walt Whitman in this lyrical adventure.
