“the fish nets are there under the waves;
you forget ancient angers fester here.”
Saugeen reads like a road trip, beginning in the former Saugeen Territory in Ontario, then extending to other parts of Canada and the Americas. These are deeply personal poems linking present conditions to the historical past, and moving backward and forward in time. The book reflects the author’s belief in the dignity of work, the sanctity of nature and the fight for social justice.
