About the Author
Stafford's work reads like an invitation to citizenship, stewardship, and self. This is poetry that asks nothing and everything of us. That accepts and loves us, asks us to rise simply by paying attention.
-- Tina Ontiveros of Klindt's Booksellers for NW Book Lovers
Wild Honey, Tough Salt demonstrates Kim Stafford's remarkable talent for coming to the heart. These poems rise beautifully and naturally from their settings, whether a morning in a forest, or inside an ancient myth, or high on a ridge above Big Basin. Wild Honey, Tough Salt contains poems of quest, reconciliation, and joy, offering the reader enlightening variations on the essence of heart and self in communion. "Everything spoke, and I was / nothing but listening."
--Pattiann Rogers, Burroughs Medal winner for Lifetime Achievement in Nature Poetry
Kim Stafford is the most humane poet going, devotedly writing every day, sharing encouragement and generous care everywhere. His eloquent lines, so deeply attentive to each moment, shimmer with breathtaking leaps and humble wisdom. They will help you live. Especially now.
--Naomi Shihab Nye
