Neal McLeod

In Gabriel's Beach, Neal McLeod takes on the stories of his relations and ancestors including his grandfather's harrowing war experiences. McLeod engages in history without losing himself in it and brings forth the power of a human voice moving story toward myth. In these intuitive, confident and powerful poems we learn of battles and of survival and of the ultimate scars that history has served on Indigenous people in this part of North America. Here is a poet who is not only a witness to what his family has endured but he is an artist who shows us a way to connect these stories to our own lives. (From Hagios Press)
