Nahshon Cook is a poet of witness whose work has been published widely. His poems safeguard memories of war, oppression, beauty, love and hope. The Killing Fields And Other Poems documents his two-and-a-half year stay in Asia. He lives in Denver, Colorado. "Nahshon Cook's The Killing Fields is a magnificent map of poems. These powerful and quiet poems lead us on a poetic journey through Cambodia, China, Nepal, Thailand, and America. They also beckon us toward an interior human journey. We meet lepers and angels, dancers and lovers, monks and mothers. These intricately crafted poems are both the road and the signposts. They map a way of compassion that observes and hopes. On the nights you can't pray, just take out this book. These poems will point you in the right direction." -- Joseph Ross, author of Gospel of Dust and Meeting Bone Man "Nahshon Cook's poetry is heart wrenching but beautiful. To read his words is to be lifted from your luxuries and comforts by the talons of a hawk and dropped into a valley full of mirrors where you must face your own humanity and absence of it each time you turn around." -- Jason Hardung, author of The Names of Lost Things and The Broken and the Damned
