48p. Cover soiled and edges worn, some staining to internal pages. Estimated publication date late 1960s to early 1970s. From the introduction "I believe in the truth, and I believe in calling a spade a spade, and I believe that the truth is the only thing that will eventually set man free. In most of my poetry you will find 90 percent truth, 7 percent parable and 3 percent fiction. So, the truth is what I am, and who I am, and what I represent. That's why I can tell it like it was and tell it like it is, and tell it like I think it ought to be. I am for peace, brother, peace: This is the truth." A collection of poetry from the poet laurate of Compton, Califorina. B&w photographs. (8-1/2"x5-1/8")
