Overview


Poetry. "With the observational eye of Charles Darwin and the soul of John Muir, Robert Grunst...takes us on a journey of the flora and fauna of his life in the Midwest and West"--Mary Swander. "Mixing scientific knowledge with lyrical panache, Grunst offers us a wealth of colorful (and memorable) fact... and he has a live, surprising language for what lies beyond facts, too, finding... that a bucket drowned in Clear Lake can remain 'shining and surer than the risen Christ.' One of his most hauntingly evocative poems ends with the phrase, 'infinitesimal treasures of the sea.' It is a phrase that aptly describes the rich lyrical and meditative sea-harvest of this remarkable first collection"--Eamon Grennan.
