Cross Lake and Other Poems is the story of the author's ancestral home in the Great North Woods of Maine. Located in the Aroostook, a mysterious narrative thread unites the disparate components of this intriguing volume. The time is 2028 and yet time stands still in these poems and many concern themselves with the past and how the past influences present and future. Incidental to this unraveling story, this volume also touches on the ravenous timber cutting of the 1800's and turn of the century logging drives, and its adverse effects on Maine's environment. The poetry finally traces the great arc from cradle to grave.
