A collection that restores Longfellow's reputation as an important and influential American poet. The most popular poet of his day, Longfellow has, unfortunately been discredited by posterity. This generous sampling of his work will give modern-day readers new insights into his long-neglected literary reach and versatility.
Longfellow's most familiar poems, the bold recreations of colonial life "Evangeline" and "The Courtship of Miles Standish," are here, as well as less familiar short lyrics and narrative poems. Differing in tone, style, and theme, the works provide a full and authentic picture of Longfellow's sense of himself, and his understanding of the true state of the times in which he lived.

Angered by the sight of warring nations, Gitchie Manito, Mohican Master of Life, sends for the prophet Hiawatha to bring peace. Brought up by his grandmother on the shores of Lake Superior, Hiawatha learns to use his remarkable powers for the good of humanity: wearing his magic moccasins he covers a mile with every step: grinds boulders to dust with his special mittens: speaks with all kinds of animals and birds in their own language. Overcoming evil forces, Hiawatha offers the gift of civilization to the world. His marriage to Minnehaha leads to a golden age of happiness and peace, until the reappearance of mischievous spirits leads Hiawatha into further adventures.

Here is one of the most stirring poems in American Literature, brought vividly to life in this breathtaking new edition by a master of picture-book illustration. Ted Rand's moonlit vision captures the swift, rhythmic gait of Longfellow's words and the drama of Revere's brave ride as he gallops from town to farm, sounding the call to rise and arm against the British. The story unfolds in memorable pictorial images: Revere's anxious wait on the shore, the two lights in the belfry of the Old North Church, Concord Bridge in the early morning hours. The mixture of history, art, and poetry results in a book as gorgeous to behold as its message is inspiring to all who love freedom. Recommended for ages 6 to 9.

Poetry for the Soul

Thy fishes breathe but where thy waters roll;
Thy birds fly but within thy airy sea;
My soul breathes only in thy infinite soul;
I breathe, I think, I love, I live but thee.
