McCULLOCH, Ian. The Moon of Hunger. (Moonbeam, ON): Penumbra Press, 1982. First Printing. Pp. (8),9-44,(4). 8vo, illustrated white card covers. The first book by this North Bay, Ontario poet. "McCulloch addresses himself to the traditional themes suggested by Indian reservations in a startling and crisp language. So too, his metaphors and images evoke the way of life whichhe, of Cree and white parentage, feels emanates from his own bloodline." - from rear cover. Includes the following poems: "The Moon of Hunger", "Gift Lake Road", "Prayer for the Cariboo", "Girl by the Road", "May-May-Quay-Si y", "Koo-Koosh", "The Riders", "Georgette, Mildred, & Rose", "The Bird of Death", "Sacrifice", and the long "Keep the Wagons in a Circle".
