William Safford Author- THE OSAGE ORANGE TREE


by William Safford      Illustrations by Dennis Cunningham

THE OSAGE ORANGE TREE, a never-before published story by poet William Stafford, is about a young live complicated by misunderstanding and insecurity of adolescence, set against their backdrop of poverty brought on by the Great Depression.  The magical coming-of-age tale is brought to life through linocut illustrations by Oregon artist Dennis Cunningham, with an afterword by poet Naomi Shihab Nye.
