Walking on an Old Road by Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel
This book is in loving memory of Okie Poet Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel and is a small tribute to her literary legacy. Walking On An Old Road is the complete chronological collection (1993-2000) of McDaniel's columns of prose and poetry published in South Valley Arts (SVA), the former monthly arts and events journal from California's Great Central Valley. Some of the poems were previously published, others appeared for the first time in SVA and can be found here.
In addition, selected notes from her correspondence are included that further highlight McDaniel's illuminating warmth and wit--and the endearing friendship she cemented with the publisher of SVA in the final decades of her life.
