About this product
- DescriptionKilling George Washington tells the story of the American frontier as it moves west. Anne Jenning's Paris, in a collection of narrative poems, imagines the voices of the forgotten historical figures of Lewis Wetzel, a torious Indian killer; York, the slave who accompanied Lewis and Clark; Charity Lamb, Oregon's first convicted murderess; Ing Hay, a Chinese immigrant who made a name for himself as a doctor; and Mary Colter, an architect who helped shaped the western landscape. Exploring the American consciousness, these poems question our shared heritage through the personal stories of legends.
- Author BiographyAnne Jennings Paris has a BA in English Literature and an MFA in Creative Writing. Her poems have appeared in Zyzzyva, the Cimarron Review, and the Pomona Valley Review. She became interested in forgotten legends of the American frontier because she is a descendant of Lewis Wetzel. Anne lives in Oregon City, Oregon, with her husband and son. Killing George Washington is her first book.
