Let us begin'
 
Alice Walker has been writing poetry since the summer of 1965, when she travelled to East Africa and began the collection Once while sitting beneath a tree facing Mount Kenya.
 
Encompassing the collections Once, Revolutionary Petunias & Other Poems, Good Night Willie Lee, I'll See You in the Morning, and Horses Make a Landscape Look More Beautiful as well as other poems, this is a wonderful, surprising, entertaining collection that offers a historical perspective on the evolution of both the poetry itself and the political and spiritual inspiration behind it.
