My Seneca Village

Marilyn Nelson. Namelos.

Gr 5 Up–Nelson infuses life into a long-gone 19th-century multiethnic New York City community that was destroyed by the creation of Central Park. Poetic forms as diverse as the village residents paint visceral and verbally rich portraits of individuals, friends, and neighbors, capturing the tenor of this forgotten place and time.
