The Willow's Whisper brings the voices of 35 poets from the Irish and Native American communities together in one compilation. This collection of poems provides an aesthetic commentary on the potential which is beyond and within the everyday. From Gabriel Rosenstock and Biddy Jenkinson to N. Scott Momaday and Karenne Wood, mother-earth comes to life through each sound and syllable, and reawakens our senses to the world at its most beautiful and evocative. This volume will aid us to reconnect with that part of our being which we may have lost touch with; that part of us intimately linked to nature. It will help us see life in every meandering stream as it surges and animates, and in the breeze moving through the branches of a willow-a whisper of hope.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This thought provoking and imaginative anthology brings poems and poets from diverse sociolinguistic and cultural traditions together into dialogue. Central yet marginalized within their respective discourses, the genus of this anthology is to change the dominant focus. By pairing these `non-canonical' texts, this anthology opens new vistas, and makes new connections amplifying human and cultural concerns all too often lost in the official Anglo-American literary and cultural canon."-Dr Brian O Conchubhair, University of Notre Dame, Indiana, USA"One travels hopefully through The Willow's Whisper. At the heart of this spirited collection rests the perennial wisdom that foreign is native, and native foreign."-Dr Peter Van de Kamp, Institute of Technology, Tralee, Ireland"A marvellous introduction to the contemporary poetry of the North American Indian, and an inspired get-together with Irish poets writing in Irish-so different in their origins, so similar in their humor and sadness."-Eoghan Mac Aogain, Linguistics Institute of Ireland
