There’s a note pasted in The Outlaw indicating that it was doneted to the library as a bequest by the author, but there is no hint what her connection to Albertville might be. She was a poet of California’s Central Valley and Sierras. Both books are largely narrative rhyming poetry about life in the west. For the most part, I found them dull even though I love the West. The dogged rhythm of the poems threaten to put one to sleep until a jarrying syntactical backflip in order to force a rhyme jolts one back to consciousness. I googled Stella Arancibia and discovered The Outlaw for sale from various vendors. But no fans of her poetry seem to have persisted. Again, I recommend that the library unload these volumes. It might be worth seeing if libraries in Fresno or Sacramento would be interested in them for historical purposes and as a record of a poet past. However, it’s unexceptional poetry, Albertville patrons have shown no interest in it, and it has no connection to the community, state or region.
