Summary

Naomi Shihab Nye has been writing about the Middle East al of her life. Her father is Palestinian, her mother German-American, and her poetry is born of a childhood spent with a foot in both worlds, growing up in St. Louis, Jerusalem, and San Antonio. This volume collects for the first time in one place all of Naomi Shihab Nye's poems about the Middle East, about peace, about being an Arab-American in the United States. You will find familiar poems here, poems that Nye's readers have cherished for years, as well as new poems being published for the first time. Nourishing, haunting, and hopeful -- here is a timeless and necessary book. Includes and introduction by the poet and a frontispiece by photographer Michael Nye.
