Synopsis
Vachel Lindsay is known as the "Prairie Troubador" because of his midwestern themes in his poetry. Lindsay grew up in Springfield, Illinois, which had a large influence on his poetry. He lived next door to the governor's mansion and wrote about the governor as well as Springfield's most famous citizen Abraham Lincoln. Several times Lindsay made walking treks across parts of the United States trading poetry for food. Published in 1917, this collection contains some of Lindsay's later poetry. Lindsay's love of heroes, patriotism and a respect for nature come out in these poems. Included in the contents are: To Jane Addams at the Hague; The Tale of the Tiger Tree; Our Mother Pocahontas; Mark Twain and Joan of Arc; Two Old Crows; The Ghosts of the Buffaloes; The King of the Yellow Butterflies; The Potatoes' Dance; and The Booker Washington Trilogy. The Ghosts of the Buffaloes; The King of the Yellow Butterflies; The Potatoes' Dance; and The Booker Washington Trilogy
