The Weight of Snow is a powerful read and the emotion it conveys was strong. I expected a "snow" related poetry but I was amazed that it follows the whole season not just focusing on the "snow", what a twist I did not expect. I received a free advanced digital copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has no effect on my opinion, rating, or review.

The Weight of Snow, written by Bri Bruce is a strong statement of her keen observations of nature and the universe around her. Bri’s love and understanding of the oceans, the mountains, and the flora and fauna that inhabits them is powerfully portrayed in this wonderful book. Her poem titled, Fly Fishing the High Sierras, allows the reader to gaze into the sights, sounds and feelings of actually being there. Growing up backpacking, surfing, hiking and diving California has certainly given her years of insight. Allow your imagination to take hold of her emotion and unique perspectives.
