Editorial Reviews

Colleen Marie Ryor
"Pamela Cranston's poetry touches something in all of us: the spiritual closeness one feels with nature, as expressed in many of her well-known Adirondack poems, as well as the desire for self-exploration that seems to come more easily when immersed in the forest. She invites the reader to join her on her personal journey of remembrance, devotion, gratitude, and hope. But her poetry speaks to more than merely those who have had the fortune to spend time in the wilderness of the High Peaks region: written with craft and a mature sensitivity to language, Pamela Cranston's poetry sings with peace, hope, and a wisdom that comes from her many experiences with the beauty of the natural world."
editor, The Adirondack Review
Richard Henry
"Coming To Treeline startles with the depth and clarity of an Adirondack lake."
editor, Blueline Literary Journal

What People are Saying About This

Mimi Kilgore
"Coming To Treeline is enchanting. Such feeling! It's an honor to have a painting from our collection grace the cover."
Curator, Fayez Sarofim Collection
Chase Twichell
"Reading these poems is like taking a long walk through snowy woods. Their language is fresh and clean, cool-headed yet brimming with a profound passion for place. They seem to come from inside the natural world (with which the writer clearly has a longstanding intimacy) rather than being composed upon it, as is true of so many �nature poems.� The book is a hymn to a place sung in a language that flows, clear and loud, out of close observation, reverence and love."
author of The Practice of Poetry: Writing Exercises from Poets Who Teach, The Ghost of Eden: Poems, and The Snow Watcher: Poems.
Bill McKibben
"I have been in most of the places where these poems are set. Pamela Cranston has captured them with grace and invested them with another skin of meaning and of beauty."
environmentalist and author of Wandering Home: A Long Walk Through America's Most Hopeful Region, Vermont's Champlain Valley and New York's Adirondacks.
