"What the Crow Said tells the exuberant, ribald, elemental tale of the citizens of a town somewhere on the weather-beaten border between Alberta and Saskatchewan." "After Vera Lang consorts with a swarm of bees, something changes in Big Indian. This prairie municipality - so remote from the rest of the world that its citizens aren't sure which province they live in - becomes somehow locked inside its own world of patience, yearning and willful struggle with nature." "Along the way, Big Indian emerges as a place simultaneously in the past and the present, the real and the imaginary, where a game of cards might last forever and a defeated farmer can freeze on his snowbound plow in June."--Jacket

"In this seminal work of poetry now widely recognized to have signaled a new era in Western Canadian writing, Robert Kroetsch departs on an expedition into history and story, literary form and myth, in search of the answer to the question of how to grow a poet on the limitless prairie, where, compared with European antecedents, all is absence. The question sends him on a literary archeological dig into an early seed catalogue and from there into a garden of memory and story, where the particulars of prairie experience shape a new geography of language and expression." "In this new edition of the work that brought the long poem to Western Canadian literature, renowned Alberta wood engraver Jim Westergard adds yet another level of interrogation with a series of visual responses to the questions posed by the poem."--BOOK JACKET

"Poet Rita Kleinhart disappeared from the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt on June 26, 1992 at age fifty-five. She has not been seen alive since. All that remains of Rita are mounds of poems: finished, unfinished, and unfinishable." "But where has Rita gone? As her "intimate friend" Raymond sorts through the papers in her abandoned ranch house, the "fragments after a fragment" whirl and dissolve into a mystery, a romance, a primer, a fiction."--BOOK JACKET
