Imagine watching a moose drink from a lake at nightfall. Gazing deep into a coyote's eyes. Dancing rain that makes everyone young.
Havoc & Solace: Poems From the Inland West is a shining example of accessible and engaging poetry that restores a vital connection with our natural world. Through the eyes of an award-winning poet, these poems take us beyond physical, mental, and historical constraints, to the wild beating heart of life in the American inland West.
Is it possible to experience an American region through writing? If the possibility exists, it is through this book.
Braided through the writing:
Why are we strangers, awkward with each other?
Who are we, left standing?
Show us how to bear the numbness, or the blazing and the chill.
Help us face forward, listen, breathe each other's air.
