The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "Alice Walker has been writing poetry since the summer of 1965, when she traveled to East Africa and began the collection entitled Once (HBJ, 1968) while sitting beneath a tree facing Mount Kenya. Here are new and unpublished poems collected for the first time with all her earlier poems, including Once, Good Night, Willie Lee, I'll see you in the Morning, Revolutionary Petunias & Other Poems, and Horses Make a Landscape Look more Beautiful." "In 1952, Walker was accidentally wounded in the right eye by a shot from a BB gun fired by one of her brothers. In 2013, on BBC Radio's Desert Island Discs, she said the act was deliberate but she agreed to protect her brother against their parents' anger if they knew the truth. Because the family had no car, the Walkers could not take their daughter to a hospital for immediate treatment. By the time they reached a doctor a week later, she had become permanently blind in that eye. When a layer of scar tissue formed over her wounded eye, Alice became self-conscious and painfully shy. Stared at and sometimes taunted by other children, she felt like an outcast and turned for solace to reading and to writing poetry. When she was 14, the scar tissue was removed. She later became valedictorian and was voted most-popular girl, as well as queen of her senior class, but she realized that her traumatic injury had some value: it had allowed her to begin "really to see people and things, really to notice relationships and to learn to be patient enough to care about how they turned out." " .
