Reviews

Praise for books in the Merrimack Valley trilogy

"Arresting. With a poet's sensibility and an essayist's search for meaning, Brox gives us keen and sensuous observations of the land...with compassion, honesty, and restraint."

--The Boston Globe

"A poignant account of return and recommitment...Brox describes crisply yet with great feeling."

--New York Times Book Review

"Tenderly and specifically, generously and with a refreshing breadth of knowledge...recreates the past lyrically and resonantly. Memory is love and cherishing, of course, but also, it is a weighing and giving."

--Mary Oliver, Pulitzer Prize winner

"A loving, precisely written evocation of a New England place and its people...reminiscent of Thoreau in its exactness and breadth of implications."

--from the judges' citation for the L.L. Winship/PEN/New England Award

"Brox's double charged language turns family drama into something bigger [in writing] so arresting that even the most urban reader feels the author's sense-memory as his own."

--Chicago Tribune

"This masterful collage of memoir and history both explodes and reorders the mythos of the American family farm."

--Betty Fussell, author of The Story of Corn

"A clear-eyed and beautifully written celebration of a place where family, community, history and nature all still matter deeply. It's been a long time since I've read anything that's caught and held my attention and admiration quite the way this wonderful memoir of life in the Merrimack Valley has."

--Howard Frank Mosher, author of God's Kingdom
