Beautiful cover illustration showing a map of the universe as understood by the Pu e b los, a beautiful production all around.

By Allen, T.D. (editor)

Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1969. The Bureau of Indian Affairs funded a Creative Writing Project beginning in 1968 which allowed Indian high school students to experiment with the forms of poetry and prose. The budget also included the publication of this slender volume, which presents the winners of a contest in both forms. 7.5" by 4.5", bound in rust-colored boards with a striking color paste-on illustration by Robert Penn. Very good plus (some mild spotting to edges).
