Description - West Pole by Diane Glancy

In this work, Glancy juxtaposes personal essays, Cherokee myths and imaginative sketches to explore her experiences as a native American mixed-blood coming to terms with the fragmentary nature of her life. This is a book about storymaking - in it, Glancy explores the ways in which the structure of native American storytelling reflects and shapes her own sense of identity. Genealogy, school, native American novels, Minnesota Public Radio, television, exercise bikes, Christmas gifts, autumn leaves, snow, a painting by Pisarro, a flight to Chicago, movies and photo albums: these are some of the some of the occasions and objects that trigger Glancy's meditations, that become milestones on her journey.
