Muscogee (Creek) writer and humorist Alexander Posey (1873-1908) lived most of his short but productive life in the Muscogee Nation, in what is now Oklahoma. One of Posey's dearest subjects was the Oktahutche River, which he so loved that he gave it voice in his poem "Song of the Oktahutche". This title collects all of Posey's poetry.

"Posey must be one of the great semi-secrets of American literature. This edition helps bring Posey into the limelight, where many readers can at last appreciate his legacy. Besides reprinting the published poems, "Song of the Oktahutche" is chock-full of previously unpublished gems that deepen the picture of Posey''s work. . . . Moreover, by turning to a rich archive of manuscripts, Sivils not only gives us poems we did not have before, but also gives us better versions of many of the poems that were (with dedicated research) already available."--Robert Dale Parker, author of "The Invention of Native American Literature""" --Robert Dale Parker (03/25/2008)
