About this title

Purdue University Press


The twelve poems in the title piece express a respect for traditions. Another four poems conjure up images of a brother killed in war. And six poems paint icons, some from real objects and others from moments in the mind. Several poems create experiences in very small places, such as Winnemucca, Nevada, and Horsefly, British Columbia. This poet sees poems in subjects others might easily miss.
