GARRY RADISON is the author of five books of poetry. His poetic works have been described as “achingly honest...his unique voice, spare and muscular...resonates with the hard-earned truths of negotiating an unquiet peace with his prairie world.” (Hagios Press) The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix said his poems are “like guideposts in a vast desert.”
Besides Defending Frog Lake, he has also written four works of non-fiction including Wandering Spirit: Plains Cree War Chief, his companion volume to Fine Day: Plains Cree Warrior, Shaman & Elder. Both books are his attempt to bring to life the history of the west from the point of view of the people who lived there.
Born and raised in Saskatchewan, he now lives in Calgary, Alberta.
