Roy Anthony Shabla about this book: This book is an autobiographical account of the young artist and poet finding his own place in the world. It is about the difficulty of being different in a cookie-cutter society. A very good read for the mature teen or young adult who is struggling with his identity... or any person who is artistic in a world that doesn't respect its artists. The great value of this book is in its breaking down of the barriers that prevent true creative expression.
This book is also about the peace and human rights movements, about being an activist for the betterment of the world in a world of overwhelming inertia. Pro-war propaganda is looked at realistically and logically; Anti-war propaganda is examined equally well. The role of the artist, the poet, in a world of conflict and dissent and human rights violations, is of paramount concern is this time of lingering war.
However lofty and abstract it may sound, this book is a very personal story of a regular guy coming-of-age.
