Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Basing their recent correspondence entirely on poems shot back and forth from Jim Harrison's Montana and southern Arizona to Ted Kooser's Nebraska, the two poets have published the results in the epistolary collaboration Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry. The short, haiku-like poems, unattributed individually to either poet, admonish readers to "Look again: that's not/ a yellow oak leaf on the path,/ but the breastplate of a turtle." Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Poetry is the most intimate form of writing, which may be why these two noteworthy authors have always included poems in their correspondence-an act that became all the more crucial when Kooser was diagnosed with cancer. These little gems prove that less is often more. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
