3 Nations Anthology
By

Rating
3 Nations Anthology: Native, Canadian & New England Writers explores shared borders and heritage of the northeast US, Atlantic Canada, and Sovereign Tribal nations residing within their borders. The poems, essays, and short stories speak of the things that divide, the bridges between, and the intense love of this rugged region they hold in common.

Reviews

Borderlines, figurative and literal, hum in the national and international consciousness with more volume right now. What unites and divides; what's shared and not; the power and complexity of lines drawn arbitrarily on a map. Distinctly of a place, this anthology achieves that rare straddle between timelessness and of-this-moment. --The Boston Globe From the opening pages of the 3 Nations Anthology, Elizabeth Sprague's "This That This" emphatically announces a book pulsing with the heartbeat of the land. The words embody this land and call readers home to it; we are compelled to follow. --Chris Benjamin, Managing Editor, Atlantic Books Today; Silver Atlantic Journalism Award winner, 2014 These are not poems of my world, but they are utterly vital missives from a world we all desperately need to know, the world where water aches an impossible blue, land lies nurtured and unscarred, and a precipitous beauty startles from all corners. Reading the poems in this long-overdue collection is like pulling a deep, revivifying breath into the body. And we're reminded that the world conjured so faithfully in this work is still there, where it's always been, still waiting for us. --Patricia Smith, author, Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah, winner of the 2014 Rebekah Bobbitt Prize, the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize (The Academy of American Poets), and the Phillis Wheatley Award in Poetry In many ways, the 3 Nations Anthology is a breath of fresh air. The idea of bringing together Canadian, Native, and New England writers is, in itself, a refreshing change from the literary and cultural barriers that we all too often allow to come between us. The fact that this collection is so well-edited, blending new and more established, prose and poetry, is another reason for celebration...let me just quote these lines from a piece by Dan Crowfeather McIsaac that catch the spirit of this collection: "My brothers and sisters, the walls are everywhere and they are very high indeed. But they are not too high if we work together. Come--give me your hand...." --Joseph Bruchac, winner of the Writer and Storyteller of the Year Awards from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas and founder of the Greenfield Review Literary Center From the opening pages of the 3 Nations Anthology, Elizabeth Sprague's "This That This" emphatically announces a book pulsing with the heartbeat of the land. Quickly it becomes evident that these authors are as taken by the land of their home as is environmentalist Winona LaDuke, who recently wrote, "This land did not let me go." In these works of poetry, fiction and essay, disparate voices gain cohesion in their celebration and memory of specific land features: bodies of water, storms, animals, and in their ability to connect them to identity, ancestry and culture. Consider the profound wound in a statement of Donna M. Loring's, who writes of how people "see the Tribes as foreigners," or, similarly yet in a decidedly different piece, J.C. Elkin defiantly asserts: "I will not have my relocation become just another big fish story." Or the depth of connection with not only land but beast, when Fredda Paul says "I felt the spirit of the eagle entering my spirit." The words herein embody this land and call readers home to it; we are compelled to follow. --Chris Benjamin, Managing Editor, Atlantic Books Today; Silver Atlantic Journalism Award winner, 2014.
