Whylah Falls is a rare, beautiful, and extraordinary book of poetry-one that is in as much demand 10 years after its publication as it was when first released.Whylah Falls is a mythic community in the heart of Black Nova Scotia populated with larger-than-life characters: lovers young and old, murderers, muses, and musicians. The powerful and sensuous narrative sings with the rhythm of blues and gospel, spinning a complex, absorbing tale of unrequited love, earthy wisdom, devouring corruption, and racial justice.
