Very excited to discover Scarborough's collections. She is a great historic and cultural link herself as well as provider of such. Thanks for making it possible to find her and her work. I was researching Jimmy Crack Corn. Now I shall look for the novel that became the last silent movie: The Wind, and see if I can't find at least some of her poetry.
