Poetry. Chicana Studies. STILL CLUTCHING MAPS is a poetry collection exploring Chicana heritage, power dynamics and identity. The poems inside delve into Butcher's experiences of living and travelling through the American southwest, Hawaiian Islands, Pacific Northwest, Yukon Territory, Alaska, and India. They're honest and self-exploratory, highlighting Butcher's cultural heritage as a young woman growing up on the U.S. and Mexico border. The poems in this collection are steeped in raw imagery.
