From the Back Cover

These poems are beautiful and brave and Anne is brilliant . . . this is the best use of felled trees since the rocking chair. Can't wait to use this book in my classrooms.
---Frank X Walker

Shelby knows how to ponder the sweet-terrible sadness of losing our parents and the old people in our communities. . . . the cycle of life is explored with lyrical tenderness. These are poems for country people, feminists, writers, reformers, academics, town people, neighbors and kin.
---Kate Black

When you hear people lament the decline and death of poetry in our time, tell them to read Anne Shelby's superb personalized tour of her Kentucky mountain world where not even the dead are dead.
