Darwin’s Daughter takes the advancement of science, the preservation of human morale and the observation of the human condition and places it under a microscope. Shearin’s artful word choice and prose phrasing makes her poems come alive. Readers will spend hours upon hours in this collection.

Praise for the seven chimpanzees
at the Kansas City Zoo who fashioned
a ladder from branches; praise
for the eight monkeys in Brazil
who used stones to smash open
a lock. We need more penguins who
slide over thirteen foot walls
to plunge into Tokyo Bay . . .
