2008 Stephen Alcorn
In this ever-timely collection of more than fifty poems and paintings divided into eight sections, one of America's most distinguished poets and anthologists, Lee Bennett Hopkins, and internationally-acclaimed painter and printmaker Stephen Alcorn trace emotions of warfare from the American Revolution to the Iraq War.
I have two poems in this collection: "Drummer" (Civil War) and "Missing" (Persian Gulf War).
Tricia Stohr-Hunt, The Miss Rumphius Effect
I can't say enough about how amazing this book is. It is a gift to every teacher who has ever wanted his/her students to understand that war has a human face and takes a human toll.
