Ark of bones, and other stories

Henry Dumas, Hale Chatfield (Editor), Eugene Redmond (Editor)
A free-lance writer, active in the area of "little magazine" writing and publishing, and a member of the teaching staff of the Experiment in Higher Education at Southern Illinois University in East St. Louis, Henry Dumas had amassed a considerable body of work at the time of his death in 1968 at the age of thirty-four. The stories show the sensitivity and skill with which he approached the themes of blackness and youth, the preoccupations of the stories, and, in the themes and techniques of the poems, demonstrate the awareness of what an African heritage can mean to an American writer
