Colin Simms - poet, naturalist, and lifelong independent observer - was born in 1939, and lives as an author and freelance naturalist in the North of England, with journeys throughout the northern hemisphere, wherever his objectives live - his homes have been where the martens, otters, birds of prey and other enthusiasms are. He is not an orthodox conservationist, but insists on the privacy, 'isness', for wildlife which modern trends deny. He also demonstrates the poet-naturalist's concern for precise observation, apposite language and cadence.

North American wildlife and the Native American tribes, and their history, have been a life-long fascination of his; this volume brings together all of his long poems, and a large number of shorter poems on these themes.
