I Knew Two Metis Women: The Lives of Dorothy Scofield and Georgina Houle Young by Gregory Scofield

With his fourth book of poetry, Gregory Scofield takes us into the heart of Metis community. In these heartbreaking and hilarious poems, Scofield celebrates the lives of his mother and aunts. Their unforgettable voices wind through the poems, telling tales, soothing hurts, offering love and shy humor as an antidote to hardship, poverty, violence and prejudice. When words alone no longer suffice, the women turn to the country-and-western legends whose songs reflect their lives. Scofield weaves verses from Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, the Carter Family and others into the stories, fashioning a sequence of poems that brings two indelible women -- and an entire community -- vividly to life.<P Knew Two Metis Women is both autobiographical and a rich tribute to the cultural and musical practices of a generation of Native people. Award-winning writer Gregory Scofield takes an imaginative leap forward by looking back: as he recreates the voices, tells the stories and sings the songs of his Metis family, he reveals the integrity and beauty that exist alongside hardship and oppression.
