James Dalton Byrd was born in Beaumont, Texas. He was a musician/entertainer for almost twenty years... playing in Beaumont, Dallas/Fort Worth, Nashville, Washington D. C., Baltimore, and New York. He retired as a teacher of biology, chemistry, and physics in 2003.

Now he enjoys writing, fishing, and kayaking in the Adirondacks for about four months out of the year.

The influence of a tour of duty with the United States Army (Infantry) in Vietnam emerges in some of his poetry. All of his poems are taken from his wide range of interests and experiences.

I have read his first book; "BANG : The Quiet and Cataclysmic Works of James Dalton Byrd, American Poet". Not all of the poems reference his tour in Vietnam as a soldier, but those that do give a rare glimpse into his humor while dealing with the horrors of that time and place. Based on his first book, I will quickly order this book and hope to give an actual review soon.
