Reviews

"As the poet contemplates the wealth of opportunity that seems innate--now, as well as when the plains people first saw the land, concluding in Prairie that the wide-ranging opportunity must be home to imagination and continual new beginnings. This is where Nebraska meets the poet most intimately, as a place of riches and with a history of new beginnings."--Jordan Charlton, Adriot Journal-- (02/18/2020)
