"I have for many years now relished the textures of Robert Morgan's words and objects. He has more touchable things per line than one would think the world offers; but that is exactly how he gets us to stop ignoring our world." -Sandra McPherson

In the past forty or more years I have learned a great deal from this man, who is exemplary as a poet, as a prose writer, and as a human being." -Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate

Gap Creek is the work of a master. Robert Morgan knows every corner, every inch, of the way of life he portrays in this deeply affecting book. He has created one of the most admirable heroines in modern literature; I feel that I'll remember her always. Here is strength and grace and immeasurable courage: a triumph! -Fred Chappell

"Chasing the North Star is an epic journey, and Morgan's vision of our dark past shines . . . Brilliantly detailed, deeply satisfying, and ultimately hopeful." -Charles Frazier
