Thomas Hornsby Ferril, 1896-1988, was a major figure in literary circles of the American West for nearly half a century. Winner of the 1926 Yale Younger Poets award for High Passage, and honored by such poets as Carl Sandburg and Robert Frost, Ferril created poetry that is musical, metrical, and meant to be read aloud. Westering was Ferril’s second collection of poetry, originally published by Yale University Press in 1934 and reprinted by Ahsahta in 1986. Ahsahta Press also brought out Ferril’s 1983 book Anvil of Roses, his sixth and final book of poems.
