"A master stylist . . . While Phillips's ideas are complex . . .His images ground us." --Library Journal
"The poems in Riding Westward ring like peals of a bell--recognizable, separate and yet merging together, radiating from a single source . . . Again Phillips strikes the theme of radiating realities, this time working inward from the largest darkness of all, which is implied, to the darkness of night, to the smaller darkness of one person's remembered life. The cowboy's song--as all the poems in Riding Westward--is a comforting lament." --Aaron Belz, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
