Dirt Road Home: Poems
Published in Paperback by Curbstone Press (1995)
Author: Cheryl Savageau
Amazon base price: $11.00
Average review score:

Cheryl Savageau writes of poverty, mixed ancestry, nature, and family in poems that are simultaneously tough and tender, and salted with a rich folk humor from her Abenaki and French Canadian ancestry.

"Engaging, emotionally open and honest, and, most importantly, interesting, the poems in this collection are the words of a woman who means to speak her mind." --Sojourner Magazine

"Savageau carries forth the poetic pulse of Merrill..." --Indianapolis News

"DIRT ROAD HOME is a collection of rich and refreshing voices; it provides connections for the unconnected, stories that are untold, and bridges between dual worlds. In a world of mixed-bloods, multi-identities, and multi-experiences, Savageau speaks as an individual of this varied world." --North Dakota Quarterly

Girl finds pride in herself and her heritage
I love this book and so does my six year old son. Very sensitively deals with namecalling. The young girl's grandfather sees that she is upset and by telling her a native amercian tale helps her find pride in her heritage and herself. Weaves together the present day story of the girl with the folktale very well.
