About the Author

Over the course of his life, James Scott Smith has lived in Michigan, Massachusetts, Kansas, California and for the last 23 years, Colorado. He studied psychology and religion while beginning his work as a psychotherapist, a wilderness guide, and a spiritual leader. He went on to create and lead a system of learning organizations designed to deliver holistic, experiential intervention in traditional and alternative settings. Breaking from his formal career in 2006, James enjoys his family and home life, the Colorado backcountry, his dogs, photography, and writing.


"For those of us who live in a small world, every single poem in this collection is a home where we feel cozy and assured. For those of us who live in a big world, James Scott Smith's poems are echoes of the deepest voices within us that are forced into oblivion during the day, but return unsolicited into our selves in the night and escort us into our dreams."

-Tony Huang, founder of Metacircle and Metacircle Fellowship, Tianjin, China

"The Expanse of All Things will remind you to wonder who you are, and encourage you to let the wild silence of the stars renew you time and again. Finding truth in the broken beauty of human experience is not an easy feat, yet James Scott Smith demonstrates that all things have the capacity to expand in ways that bring healing, life, and a reason to place your gaze firmly on the mystery of being alive."

-Heidi Barr, author of Woodland Manitou: To Be on Earth

"Once again, James Scott Smith has conjured a gift of words and wisdom that is deeply felt and always on the edge of magical. He reveals a view of our world that is both enchanted and harsh--spirited and yet very human. I love this collection and savor each poem as a profound feeling, familiar and wildly new. This is what Whitman and Thoreau would be reading if they were alive today."

-Jonathan Ellerby PhD, bestselling author of Return to the Sacred

"The Expanse of All Things describes the wild beauty of the earth with a clear-eyed reverence that recalls the iconic writers of the Western American landscape, Robinson Jeffers and Gary Snyder."

-Thomas Alan Orr, author of Tongue to the Anvil
