Part prayer book, part anthropological treatise, the poetry of Wild Soil describes and analyzes the often contradictory motivations for human emotions and behavior.

In these verses, comprised of several years worth of selected material from various stages of his life, author Frank R. Chappell explores the follies of melancholic youthfulness, exuberant love, energetic faith, complete nihilism, profane tirades, and sacred contemplation. This collection presents a narrative of the individual's navigation through reality as a fretful sojourn of introspection that yields beautiful fruit. It celebrates the unseen victory in everyday failures, the human imperative to create meaning in all things, and the ability to stumble upon the permeating feeling of interconnectedness in our struggle for purpose.

Taking an anthropological approach, this collection of poetry offers a raw and unusual consideration of humanity's paradoxes and contradictions.
