In 'The Weight of Snow,' author B. L. Bruce explores the many plights of the human species, from the mysteries of the heart and the inescapability of death, to the depths of human emotion. Told from the perspective of a poetic naturalist, Bruce shares her appreciation of the wild, illuminating the profound in the mundane while chronicling the natural world as both an observer and as an irrefutable part of it. Her poems focus strongly on image and locality, conjuring the imaginations of readers and celebrating the beauty in the follies of the human condition and its capacity to grip the soul.

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.
