Wayne was born and raised in Alaska. Both of his parents gifted him with a family environment that focused on attentive word usage and word play. Since 1975 Leman has used that verbal heritage working as a linguist for the Cheyenne Indians. Sometimes he writes poetry. In this collection you will sense his love for words, as he writes, on the one hand, about things that matter most to him, and, on the other hand, and sometimes on both hands at the same time, his penchant for playing with words.
