Winner of the Carl Sandburg Award for Poetry upon first publication, Giscome Road continues the meditation on place begun in Here, C. S. Giscombe’s earlier volume of poetry. Concerned with specific locales in northern Canada named for the nineteenth-century Jamaican miner and explorer John Robert Giscome, this collection incorporates a variety of historical documents, maps, and dreams, to go “in & further in,” discovering and documenting music, racial dichotomies, sexuality, and the ways in which landscape itself is described.
