Book Description

In this remarkable little book, Ron Wallace plays the role of the tribal storyteller, taking us into the minds and hearts of those American men who played out the drama that was the Battle of Gettysburg, the pivotal event in the war. Unlike the storytellers of the ancient world who kept the hearts of the epic heroes about whom they wove their stories on the level of myth, In this remarkable little book, Ron Wallace plays the role of the tribal storyteller, taking us into the minds and hearts of those American men who played out the drama that was the Battle of Gettysburg, the pivotal event in the war. Unlike the storytellers of the ancient world who kept the hearts of the epic heroes about whom they wove their stories on the level of myth, Ron Wallace takes us into the minds of the men of Gettysburg, the actual historical figures as well as those he creates, and gives each of them a heart we can understand.

And, in that understanding, we come to "feel" the Battle of Gettysburg as the men did who were there. It is one thing to know the facts and statistics and sequence of events in historic confrontations. It is another thing to know the fear and despair and hopes of the men whose names are part of those statistics and events.

That is the wondrous achievement of this book. Wallace has an encyclopedic knowledge of the battle and the people in it: the personal relationships of the leaders of both the federal and confederate forces, life-long friendships now challenged by personal confrontations on the battlefield. He knows where in the chaos of the fighting John Burns is relative to John Reynolds; why Buford had reason to hope that his small band of cavalrymen could successfully defend the high ground; the angst of Longstreet, who saw the catastrophe coming but could not convince Lee of the folly of his decision; the arrogance and indecision of Meade; the battles within the battle - Little Round Top, Cemetery Ridge, Pickett's charge; Chamberlain's desperation leading to his heroic decision to swing a gate down the hillside and, not only carry the day on Little Round Top, but preserve the victory for the entire Union army.

And, like the storytellers of old, Wallace sets the stories of these men in an almost mythic world, where a marble angel, keeper of the peace at Gettysburg, stands and watches, hour after hour, day after day, the slaughter of men and horses and the shredding of the social fabric or her country for centuries to come. It is through the blending of his unique poetic style and his uncanny ability to take us into the minds of the men of Gettysburg that Wallace tells this oft told story and we listen, as if we were hearing it for the first time. In this little book, we see how poetry enhances history, and in that enhancement, gives events such as the Battle of Gettysburg the aura of myth.

He grew up and still lives there with his wife and college sweetheart, Jane. They have one son, Matthew who is currently attending Southeastern Oklahoma State University where Ron graduated with a B.A. in 1977 and an M.A. in 1983.

Wallace taught English, Humanities, American History, and coached baseball in Colbert, Oklahoma (a small public school on the Red River) for thirty years moving away from the writing he had been doing in college. He is of Native American (Choctaw, Cherokee and Osage) and Scots Irish ancestry tracing his roots out of Georgia and Arkansas into Oklahoma. He began to revive his writing in the 90's and started attempting some publishing as that decade closed.

His work has appeared in Insight, Poetic Voices, Loch Raven Review, Scorched Earth Publishing and Grandmother Earth XIV just to name a few publications. In 2004 and 2005 he won several contests and was awarded a chance to publish a book at emergingpoets.net a website sponsored at that time by Jim Furber of TJMF Publishing. The result was Wallace's first book, Native Son (American Poems From the Heart of Oklahoma), which became a finalist in the 2007 Oklahoma Book Awards.

He saw his work translated and published in the January 2007 issue of the Romanian Literary Magazine, Convorbiri Literare by the noted Romanian poet Vasile Baghiu in December of 2006. In February of 2007 Wallace appeared as part of the emergingpoets.net Southern Tour with one of the current sponsors of the site Maggie Wilkie and Tina Collins-Eib, Lynn Doiron, Sherry Thrasher and featured poet, Leo Briones. In March of 2007 he appeared as the featured poet at the Abydos Learning International Trainers Conference in Houston.

In May he was the featured poet in Scorched Earth Publishing e-zine at www.scorchedearthpublishing.com, and in September he won second place in the 2007 Grandmother Earth National Environmental Poetry Writing Awards. In 2007 his second book based on his love of American History was released. Smoke and Stone (The Voices of Gettysburg) is a poetic account of the Battle of Gettysburg from different points of view of both real and fictional participants in this turning point of the Civil War.

Wallace's third book of Oklahoma poetry, I Come from Cowboys ... and Indians, was released in October of 2008 and won the 2009 Oklahoma Writer's Federation Best Book of Poetry Award. His fourth volume of poetry, Oklahoma Cantos, was released in September 2010 and was a finalist in the 2011 Oklahoma Book Awards and won the 2011 Oklahoma Writer's Federation Best Book of Poetry Award.
