Overview

Both an acknowledgement and a quiet celebration of the connections that run through people and their personal and public histories, this poetry collection explores and mines the past and present while stepping into the future. The poems are rich in image and in their sense of Canada, especially the tensions between literature and its physical realities. A heady and heads-up mix of classicism, urban pop culture, and historic Glengarry County in Eastern Ontario, this volume roots itself in the green earth, where it holds and thrives at all costs.
