Anthem for a Burnished Land
Anthem for a Burnished Land is an engaging account of life in one of America’s most storied places, full of powerful insights into the town’s past and present and often moving stories about its varied residents. Griffin is one of the West’s highly admired poets, and his memoir reveals his brilliance as a memoirist and reporter of life on the rim of the Great Basin, one of the continent’s emptiest, most beautiful, and most threatened places.
Shaun T. Griffin is the co-founder and director of Community Chest, a rural social justice agency serving northwestern Nevada since 1991. Limberlost Press released Driving the Tender Desert Home (chapbook—poems) in 2014. He edited From Sorrow’s Well—The Poetry of Hayden Carruth, published by the University of Michigan Press in 2013. This Is What the Desert Surrenders: New and Selected Poems, came out from Black Rock Press in 2012. For over three decades, he and his wife Debby have lived in Virginia City.
