“Since the earliest times the poet has been our first historian, telling the stories that make us who were are. In Marked Men Joseph Hutchison reminds us just how dark, how bloody the history of the ‘New World’ has been. But the longest of his three powerful poems is not just a story about the deep vein of hatred and prejudice leading to the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864. It is also a portrait of decent resistance in the person of Silas Soule and his friend Ned Wynkoop. This book deepens and complicates our national story. It is written in blood and the fire of indignation.” —David Mason, Colorado Poet Laureate
