HAMILTON, Sylvia. And I Alone Escaped To Tell You. (Kentville): Gaspereau Press, 2014. First Printing. Pp. (8),9-94,(2). 8vo, black card covers, silver lettering to spine, in beige paper jacket, purple lettering to front panel and spine. "The settlement of African peoples in Nova Scotia is a richly layered story encompassing many waves of settlement and diverse circumstances -- from captives to 'freedom runners' who sailed north from the United States with hopes of establishing a new life. The poems in 'And I Alone Escaped to Tell You' endeavour to give these historical events a human voice, blending documentary material, memory, experience and imagination to evoke the lives of these early Black Nova Scotians and of the generations that followed. This collection is a moving meditation on the place of African-descended people in the Canadian story and on the threads connecting all of us to the African diaspora." - from the rear wraparound band. Very good. Signedand inscribed by Hamilton on the title page. 20.00
