Having achieved fame internationally as a painter the sensitive prose and poetry of T.C. Cannon - 28 years after his sad death - still today, bring tears to the eyes of mature women, and his many dear friends. Most written after Viet Nam, his word-paintings touch the soul.Robert N. Harcourt
Tee's painting and writing personified a generation of significant change within the Native American culture, politics, and historical perspectives. Like all great works of art, his "voice" crossed many cultural boundaries and continues to eloquently speak of his singular searching soul, long gone lovers, and whales swimming freely off the coast of France in the rain.Sherman Chaddlesone

His "Determined Eye" is wide open, and will open yours as well. His "resolute heart" infuses every poem with a humanity and universality that will speak to any reader.
These gentle poems have a power of the wind - you don't see it but you feel it and cannot help but be affected. And the power is not always benevolent - just like the wind can churn our world, T.C.'s words can leave you examining the wreckage our country creates in sending young men to war, or in ignoring the loneliness or aspirations of any generation or people.Joan Phillips, PhD
