"Linda Hogan... speaks to us the way a trusted friend might, inviting you to take warmth by the hearth. Her verses teach us how to live with dignity in a world bent on destruction and show why it is important to fight for the planet."

Poems from Linda Hogan explore new and old ways of experiencing the vagaries of the body and existing in harmony with earth's living beings. Throughout this clear-eyed collection, Hogan tenderly excavates how history instructs the present, and envisions a future alive with hope for a healthy and sustainable world that now wavers between loss and survival.
