Focused's Book of Poems

One of the saddest things about "The Chase" ending is the fact that we may never be able to read a new poem by James Bynum - better known to us searchers as FOCUSED.

FOCUSED is a gentleman who has been posting his poems on Dal's blog site since February, 2015. His poems have FOCUSED on the chase, one or two about the trials of having a heart attack, but the majority have FOCUSED on Native American culture and heritage. He has been able to paint pictures in our minds so vivid that we can feel the heat of a camp fire on our cheeks, or feel the wind rushing over an eagle's wing soaring high above a mountain canyon.

For years, we searchers have asked FOCUSED to publish a book of his poems. At long last, FOCUSED has agreed to publish about 350 of his poems..  Publishing a book is not an inexpensive endeavor though. Editing and page lay-out alone will cost about $1500.00. After that, publishing the hardcover collection of his poems will cost thousands - dependent on the number of books published.

James (Focused) insists that he wants to make NO money off of the "Chase." James has assured me that any profits from the sale of his book will go towards future publishing costs, or will be given to a variety of charitable organizations that will either help Native Americans, or organizations such as the American Heart Association.

We all would love to have all of James' (FOCUSED's) poems brought together in a single hard cover book.  In order to make this possible, we will need to open our wallets, just as wide as FOCUSED has opened his heart when he creates one of his beautifully vivid poems.  THANKS for your help.
