Octavo (21.5 cm), pp. 66. Brand new, signed by author on title page. "Beaudin delivers another fine collection of poems from the heartland. Like Roethke, the poems are rooted in the soil, sung from thickets and hooted in the night. Unlike Roethke, Beaudin reveals a nomad's soul with distant mountains tugging at his open heart. This book should best be read at the edge of a swamp or high on a wooded hillside. I haven't enjoyed such singing since Jim Harrison came west" -- Doug Peacock. First Edition. View more info
