About this product
- DescriptionLost Creeks collects for the first time all the journals and shorter autobiographical works of ted Muscogee (Creek) writer, humorist, and political activist Alexander Posey (1873 - 1908). In his brief but productive life Posey became an influential political spokesperson, man of letters, and advocate for better conditions in Indian Territory. Posey's journals reveal much about his turbulent but teworthy political career, his personal aspirations and challenges, and the creative process behind t only his poetry and short stories but also his famed Fus Fixico letters. Drawing on extensive archival research, Matthew Wynn Sivils produces a carefully antated edition of the journals and also provides abundant contextual information. This volume enriches and personalizes the legacy of this remarkable Native writer and provides new insight into the beginnings of twentieth-century Native intellectual, political, and literary movements and traditions.
