In this poetry collection, John Sibley Williams explores the inner and outer landscapes encountered on a journey to Iceland. As with physical landscapes, surprising perspectives are revealed by each step. Lava and ice, civilization and wilderness, family and solitude–these apparent contradictions collide inside poems which beg to be read aloud, just as their Nordic ancestors were around Iceland’s first man made fires.
