Come, Wewoka & Diary Of Medicine Flower: Poems On The Trail Of Tears - Cherokee Aphorisms

Come, Wewoka & Diary Of Medicine Flower: Poems On The Trail Of Tears - Cherokee Aphorisms - Edward C. Patterson Ed Patterson has written some glorious poetry with evocative imagery in the first half of this book. "Come, Wewoka" consists of numerous pieces discussing aspects of the Trail of Tears and describing the history of the Cherokee nation."Diary of Medicine Flower" is a delightful series of philosophical essays on a variety of topics. I particularly enjoyed the essay about the spirit pouch, which contains items that touch an individual's soul, and how we should always have a spirit pouch (I presume in a figurative sense) to remind of us of who we are.Highly recommended for admirers of poetry or those interested in Native American thoughts and culture.
