Dreamers on Horseback collects the body of Baker’s poetry into a single volume; introduced and annotated by Baker biographer Sarah Ragland Jackson, the book reintroduces Baker to a 21st Century audience. During Baker’s lifetime, the poet—despite her residence in East Texas—published her work widely in some of the top journals of the country, then and now, including The Yale Review, Poetry, and Harper’s. She was the first woman to be inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters, and, for nearly five decades, she was one of Texas’s most widely published and regarded poets. Dreamers on Horseback, first published by the now defunct Southwest Press of Texas in 1931, garnered Baker a Pulitzer Prize nomination. Seventy years after its publication Dreamers is once again available.
