For six decades of his seventy-five years, poet Ted Kooser has been carried around a sketchbook in which prose, poetry, and watercolors intermingle. For the Pulitzer Prize winner and former Poet Laureate, this is not habit, it's a commitment. "Don't ever be without one of these," he told an audience. "You never know when something will come to you or you will see something that you need to capture—a word, a phrase or a story idea." In The Wheeling Year, he captures them adroitly, proving anew that you don't have to move to a big city to become a major poet. A small town in Nebraska serves just as well. Editor's recommendation.
