From the book jacket: “Olive Tilford Dargan needs no introduction to a public familiar with her work. Beginning in 1904 with her first volume, Dargan has produced dramas, volumes of verse, and stories in marvelous variety and continued freshness of insight. And in 1932 she published her first novel, under the name of Fielding Burke. With her latest volume, The Spotted Hawk, she has again turned all her charm and imaginative power toward poetry. Some of the older poems include in the work have appeared in national magazines, but many of them, some quite recent, have never been previously published. Dargan is a native of Kentucky, but has been a North Carolinian for more than 25 years and lives in Asheville, NC, among the mountains she loves.”
