This is a book of poems, set in Lincoln County, Oklahoma, that draws on family history and historical chronicles.

But the truth is something happened
I cannot wake to tell though trying to tell it
Writing about it climbing down among
Weathered boards fallen over the well of the past.
The pump gone I peer down the hole
Down into the dark and gleam of stories
They told us, and we didn't know any others.

from "The Photo of Young Wayne by the Pump"
